Rare insights into 15th century: The Tacuinum Sanitatis

October 6, 2023

This extraordinary secular picture book is a highly unusual witness to everyday life in 15th century Padua. Originally a medical handbook, or a guide to healthy living, the miniatures, all of high artistic quality, are now presented without the accompanying text. The images are the work of four accomplished artist. This unique book is as beautiful as it is fascinating.


To see this and other splendid manuscripts in person, visit us at our stand E3 at Frieze Masters London, from 11-15 October at The Regent’s Park. We look forward to welcome you at our stand!
