July 18, 2020 Tudor Miniatures: For Your Eyes Only!

In this month's episode, Sarah talks to Emma Rutherford from The Philip Mould Gallery, an expert on Tudor miniatures. Listen to Emma describe the diplomatic and deeply romantic use of these tiny, but exquisite, objects; the techniques used to create them and the refined world of the Tudor miniaturist. How did one miniature change the course of English history, while another reveals the racy side of the Elizabethan court? Listen in to find out more about these intensely personal objects!

There is a blog that compliments this podcast. This a consolidated transcription of this interview. You can also see pictures of some of the miniatures described – and more. To read the blog, follow this link.  


The Tudor Travel Guide news desk returns with all the latest July news. This time, we introduce a new roving reporter, Adam Buchanan, who reports from north of the border, in Scotland, where a forlorn Mary, Queen of Scots has just abdicated her throne in favour of her infant son, James.
