Description

On the occasion of the special exhibition “The Renaissance Casket from Newbattle Abbey”, the visitor will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Virginie Spenlé at Trinity Fine Art. She is one of the authors of the newly published exhibition catalogue entitled “Perspectiva” and will present the Renaissance Casket from Newbattle Abbey–a Renaissance masterpiece of cabinet-making, adorned with trompe l’oeil marquetry and engravings, made in Nuremberg in 1565 in the workshop of the Master of Perspective and later displayed at Newbattle Abbey among the art collections of the Marquesses of Lothian. While handling the original casket, Dr. Spenlé will evoke the specific context in which it was created, decipher its complex iconography and explain its function as a Kunst- and Wunderkammer object. The visitor will gain insight into the fascinating history and unique features of this masterpiece of Renaissance cabinet-making that once belonged to one of the most important British collections.
