Colour: The Art of Science of Illuminated Manuscripts opens to rave review

The Fitzwilliam Museum’s latest exhibition ‘Colour: The Art of Science of Illuminated Manuscripts’ has opened to rave reviews. The exhibition

COLOUR showcases advanced research undertaken by the Fitzwilliam’s curators, scientists and conservators involved in the Cambridge Illuminations and MINIARE projects. It celebrates modern-day discoveries inspired by collections assembled over 200 years ago.

“The Fitzwilliam Museum best-preserved manuscripts are beautifully lit in this sumptuous show to expose their true artistic glory” – The Guardian

“the displays themselves are lit up, jewel-like” – The Telegraph

“Michael Grubb Studio are the lighting designers that every exhibition curator dreams of. Professional and personable, imaginative and resourceful, sympathetic to the curator’s vision, attentive to detail and ready with multiple solutions for every challenge. It was a pleasure to work with them on the COLOUR exhibition.” – Stella Panayatova, Head Curator, Fitzwilliam Museum
