Accompanying a museum exhibition by the same name, being held at The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art (16th December 2009- 4th April 2010) and The Preservation Society of Newport County (8th May 2010- 31st October 2010), this lavishly-illustrated (over 150 reproductions mostly in color) publication examines the collection of fine and decorative arts objects forming the core of The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art's Medieval and early Renaissance holdings. Comprising around 350 paintings, sculptures, and works of the decorative arts, including metalworks, wax miniatures, furniture, ceramics, timepieces, painted glass, and cameos, made in Europe chiefly between the twelfth and sixteenth centuries, the Gavet-Vanderbilt-Ringling collection originally belonged to Émile Gavet (1830-1904), a Parisian architect-decorator, art collector, and art dealer, who sold 340 pieces in his private museum, near the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, France to Mrs. William K.

If you (like me) missed the exhibit at the Ringling, you need this book. Very informative and illustrative of this era. This book is hard to find elsewhere.
