An Illumination Depicting Silver-Ore Mining and Processing from the Collections of the Gallery of the Central Bohemian Region
The Gallery of the Central Bohemian Region has provided access to an excised illumination that it acquired in an auction in 2009. It has been digitised by the company AiP Beroun s.r.o. The sheet of a size of ca 64.5 x 44 cm depicts silver-ore mining and processing in Kutná Hora. It was painted shortly before 1500. Besides its artistic qualities, it is an important source on the method of ore mining and processing, which has analogies in other paintings from both Kutná Hora and the region of the Ore Mountains (Krušné Hory).
