Silently, she recites the earlier mottoes from the miniaturist – Things Can Change
. Every Woman Is the Architect of Her Own Fortune. I Fight To Emerge. But who is
fighting to emerge here, Nella wonders, and who is the architect – the miniaturist,
or me? The old, unanswered question rises up – why is this woman doing this?
Unnamed, the miniaturist lives on the outside of society, not bounded by its rules
– but be you a tulip or a turnip, we are all of us accountable to someone in the
end ...

The time has been when the miniaturist was the only artist who practised painting
. He is therefore for such a time an invaluable link in its chain of history. At no time
very far behind the best of painters, even in the golden age of the Italian
Renascence, the best miniaturist has always been notably ahead of the maestri
dozzinali with whom Italy has abounded at every epoch. Not a few great and well
-known painters have also practised miniature, but, as a rule, the professions

and finished cycle of the Passion of Our Lord; the whole aim of the miniaturist
consisted only in this. As the determining basis for the miniaturist there served the
text not of the original Gospels, but the apocryphic Gospel of Nicodemus; this fact,
according to the opinion of Mr. Usov, explains not only the general composition of
the miniatures of the Rossano Codex, but also the details of its iconographic
subjects. This supposition is not entirely acceptable from the external point of
view.

The more routine manuscripts often show less specialization, and in books such
as the Miraumont and Waddesdon Hours the miniaturist received the whole
bifolio to decorate, but did not produce the bulk of the text borders and initials.
Which system was used was probably dependent on a number of factors, and not
simply the cost of the manuscript or the amount of work involved. The Brussels
Hours, a very standard production, has borders which are not painted by the
miniaturist, ...

The most important centers of the miniaturist art were Tabriz, Baghdad, Shiraz,
and Herat, but skillful calligraphers, gilders, and bookbinders as well as painters
worked in academies across the Eurasian Islamic world. Miniaturist painting was
a multinational artistic form—and thus we speak of Mughal miniatures, Ottoman (
or Turkish) miniatures, Mamluk miniatures, and so on, each with their own
characteristics and paths of development—including the absorption of European
influence.

An Irish chronicle of the end of the twelfth century relates the story of a lazy
miniaturist, or simply one in need of inspiration, to whom an angel appeared in a
dream. The angel came bearing a painted image that he insisted the miniaturist
should reproduce as the frontispiece of an illustrated bible. The artist hesitated to
follow these instructions, which were finally carried out only through the
intervention of Saint Brigid of Kildare (angelo praesen- tante, Brigida orante,
scriptore imitante, ...
