Les Enluminures


Founded by Dr. Sandra Hindman 30 years ago and with galleries in Chicago, Paris, and New York, Les Enluminures is a premier dealer in manuscripts, miniatures, and historic rings and jewelry from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Les Enluminures has forged long-standing relationships with major museums and prestigious private collections throughout the world. The gallery exhibits at major art fairs. Sandra Hindman is responsible for numerous publications on medieval manuscript illumination and historic jewelry; her scholarship over many decades has established a model for study in this field, and descriptions of works available in the gallery meet the same level of professionalism. Located in the United States and abroad, Hindman’s large team is composed of noted specialists.

Les Enluminures’ two websites offer access to different gallery initiatives. A series of podcasts transform the past into the present. A YouTube channel hosts a wide range of videos, and we have an active social media presence. Find our jewelry also on 1stDibs. View nearly every work offered by Les Enluminures either in person at one of our locations or in accessible videos.

We welcome all inquiries from serious collectors, museums, and libraries, as well as from anyone who delights in experiencing and knowing about the European Middle Ages, at any level.
