ru. 1 Illuminated Manuscripts. It is usual to regard English painting as beginning with the Tudor period and for this are several reasons.

Yet the fact remains that painting was practised in England for many hundred years before the first Tudors came to the throne. The development of the linear design in which English artists have always excelled can be traced back to the earliest illuminations brilliantly evolved in irish monastic centres and brought to Northumbria in the seventh century. Its principal feature is that wonderful elaboration of interlaced ornament derived from the patterns of metal-work in the Celtic Iron Age, which is to be found in the Book of Kells and Lindesfarne Gospel, its Northumbrian equivalent.

The greatest achievement in Irish manuscript illumination, the Book of Kells is now generally assigned to the late eighth or early ninth century. The Book of Kells is a manuscrept of the gospes of rather large size3324 cmwritten on thick glazed vellum. Its pages were originally still larger but a binder, a century or so ago, clipped away their margins, cutting even into edges of the illuminations.

The great gospel, on account of its wrought shrine, was wickedly stolen in the night from the sacresty of the church and was found a few months later stripped of its gold, under a sod. Finally the manuscript passed to trinity college, where it is today.

No manuscript approaches the book of kells for elaborate ornamentation. A continuous chain of ornamentation runs through the text. The capitals at the beginning of each paragraph two, three, cour to a page are made of brightly coloured entwinements of birds, snakes, destorted men and quadrupeds, fighting or performing all sorts of acrebatic feats.

Other animals wander about the pages between the lines or on top of them. The thirteenth century had been the century of the great cathedrals, in which near.
