Exhibition - Le Bon, le Téméraire et le Chancelier - Quand flamboyait la Toison d'Or

back to the overview

This international exhibition in the heart of Burgundy's wine capital offers a new perspective on the history and art of Burgundy and Flanders in the 14th and 15th centuries, with special attention to the figures of the last two dukes - Philip the Good (1396-1467) and Charles the Bold (1433-1477) - and the chancellor Nicolas Rolin (1376-1462), founder of the Hospices de Beaune.

The works exhibited, from public and private collections in Europe, mainly Belgium, are compared with objects currently in France. More than one hundred and fifty medieval works of art, including paintings, sculptures, goldsmith's tools, tapestries, manuscripts and archival documents, have been brought together to reveal the art of living of the elites and the know-how of the artists and craftsmen of the "Grand Duchy of the West."

The Arenberg Foundation is lending some of its masterpieces.
