      Coming to an American museum (hopefully) near you:

      Subject: Morgan Library's medieval prayer books at the Kimbell, Fort
      Worth

      While the Morgan Library is undergoing renovations, they put
      together a traveling exhibition of 58 prayer books, "Painted
      Prayers," from their unique collection, and it's at the Kimbell Art
      Museum in Fort Worth until Jan. 18 and is scheduled later at the St.
      Louis Art Museum Oct. 2004-Jan. 2005 and Getty Museum Oct. 2005-Jan.
      2006.

      http://www.morganlibrary.org/exhibitions/painted/html/index.html

      Among the often tiny treasures displayed are the DuBois Hours
      (1325), the Hours of Catherine of Cleves (1440), and the Farnese
      Hours (1546), and prayer books by the Bedford Master, Jean Fouquet,
      Simon Marmion, and Attavante degli Attavanti.

      Two books by Jean Poyet--The Hours of Henry VIII and the Prayer Book
      of Anne de Bretagne--are also show in an online exhibit,

      The Morgan's online catalog, Corsair, links to details of the
      collection: http://corsair.morganlibrary.org/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?

      (or click on http://tinyurl.com/wyst).

      As well, the Morgan has three other traveling exhibitions, one with
      26 prints from the Picture Bible (ca. 1248), dismounted while the
      book is in conservation.
