Manuscript Illumination: Symbols and Creative Methods

Welcome to Museum’s School of Art

Saturday and Sunday, September 29 and 30
9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

NOTE: In connection with Resplendent Illuminations: Books of Hours from the 13th to the 16th Century in Quebec Collections

Discover a little known and fascinating art form in this workshop designed for all. 

Following an overview of the history of illuminated manuscripts, in connection with the Museum’s temporary exhibition Resplendent Illuminations: Books of Hours from the 13th to the 16th Century in Quebec Collections, you will be invited to create a small illumination inspired by the Insular manuscripts from England, Scotland and Ireland dating to the early Middle Age. The steps to its completion will follow those used in the scriptoriums of the time. You will explore such concepts as iconography, as well as image transfer, composition, layout and colour harmony, and learn the technique of painting in gouache, including egg tempera. The workshop will conclude with a demonstration of the application of gold leaf.  

Instructor: Marie-Louise Pépin, artist and art educator

Marie Louise Pépin taught visual arts and art history at the Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne in Montreal for many years. As an artist, she has long been interested in the technique of illumination, particularly the insular manuscripts of the Early Middle Ages. A keen promoter of international education, in 2004, she founded a major collaboration focussed on artistic exchanges between Quebec and Cuba, specifically the Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne and the Academia de Artes Plásticas El Alba in Holguín. Numerous projects arose from this partnership, including three major exhibitions presented in the Michel de la Chenelière Educational Spaces at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition International Postal Art, presented in 2014 and featuring more than 1,300 works from twelve countries, was the culmination of this collaboration.
