Masterpieces of the J. Paul Getty Museum, Illuminated Manuscripts. The Getty Museum’s collection of illuminated manuscripts, featured in this book, comprises masterpieces of medieval and Renaissance art. Dating from the tenth to the sixteenth century, they were produced in France, Italy, Belgium, Germany, England, Spain, Poland, and the eastern Mediterranean.
I visited the J. Paul Getty Villa in Malibu, California in the late '80s as a teenager and experienced my first "moved by an amazing piece of art" moment while viewing Vincent van Gogh's "Irises." Something I will never forget. http://www.getty.edu/art/gettyguide/artObjectDetails?artobj=947
