Description

Plaque with Censing Angels, champlevé enamel and copper gilt, ca. 1170–80.

Jewel-toned Limoges enamels were renowned throughout medieval Europe. Our print shows an enameled plaque that originally crowned the top of a large, double-sided altar cross. The angels mournfully bear witness to the Crucifixion of Jesus; their censers proclaim his death and allude to the consecration of bread into Christ's body, since incense was burned both at funerals and during Mass. The balanced composition, the richness of the colors, and the refinement of the background distinguish this plaque’s excellence.
