The Four Evangelists - early 15th C from the Walters Art Museum

One rare piece after another, the Walters Art Museum has been putting its incredible collection of medieval manuscripts and artwork on-line for the world to enjoy.

Not only can you now see much of the collection without having to take a trip to Maryland, you can download the images for free and do with them what you may.

Resurrection of Christ - Alabaster sculpture from the Walters Art Museum

Saint John the Evangelist - alabaster sculpture from the Walters Art Museum

This is going to be fun …
