The Mourners: Medieval Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgundy

October 3, 2010–January 2, 2011

During the 14th and 15th centuries, the Valois dukes of Burgundy ruled over extensive territories in present-day France, Luxembourg, Belgium, and the Netherlands from their capital in Dijon, which during their reign became a major center of artistic patronage. The Dallas Museum of Art and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, in association with FRAME (the French Regional & American Museum Exchange), are organizing an exhibition that will bring some of the most significant examples of medieval Burgundian sculpture to seven museums across the United States.

The Mourners: Medieval Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgundy will feature forty sculptures from the tomb of John the Fearless (1371–1419), the second duke of Burgundy. His elaborate tomb is among the most important—and moving—examples of Burgundian art. Once housed at the Chartreuse de Champmol, a monastery on the outskirts of Dijon, this monument is now one of the centerpieces of the collection of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, and the mourning figures from the tomb are being offered for this exceptional loan during renovations of the gallery where the tomb is displayed.

The Mourners: Medieval Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgundy is organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, in association with FRAME (the French Regional & American Museum Exchange). It is curated by Sophie Jugie, Director, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, with Heather MacDonald, The Lillian and James H. Clark Associate Curator of European Art at the Dallas Museum of Art. A catalogue with color illustrations and a text by Sophie Jugie will be produced by FRAME.

This exhibition is supported by a leadership gift from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Florence Gould Foundation, the Eugene McDermott Foundation, Connie Goodyear Baron, and Boucheron. Major corporate support is provided by Bank of the West (Member BNP Paribas Group). This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.
