Medieval Beasts

This new exhibition of animal images, culled from the Museums permanent collection, features many of the museum’s most popular illuminated manuscripts, such as its two bestiaries, and some books and leaves rarely displayed, including a lively manuscript of Aesop’s fables.

The 23 images chosen for Medieval Beasts, at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center from May 1, 2007 July 29, 2007, are divided into three sections: Animals in Daily Life, Symbolic Creatures, and Fantastic Beasts.
