Illuminated Hebrew Texts, The Morgan Library & Museum, Manhattan, New York, New York

Pierpont Morgan and his son J.P. Morgan amassed medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts that rank among the world's greatest.  Their interests did not extend to Hebrew texts.  New York artist Barbara Wolff has donated her illuminated manuscripts to bridge the gap.  They are from Psalm 104 and the Rose Haggadah.

Illuminated Haggadah from Medieval Spain, ca. 1300

You Renew the Face of the Earth

We Were Slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt
