Penelope Haralambidou @ Domobaal Gallery

30 January 2020 - 20 August 2020

Penelope Haralambidou’s project ‘City of Ladies’ studies ‘The Book of the City of Ladies’, 1405, by Italian/French medieval author Christine de Pizan (1364 – c.1430). The text is part of a compilation assembled for Queen Isabeau of Bavaria between 1410 – 1414 (Harley MS 4431) the largest surviving collected manuscript of her works and one of the foundation manuscripts at the British Library.

 ‘City of Ladies’ focuses on the under–researched significance of the architectural and urban allegory portrayed in Pizan’s text, as well as in the accompanying illuminations – miniature illustrations – which display different stages of the construction of the city.
