For the upcoming double exposition Masterpieces of Late Medieval Sculpture. 1400-1530 (2021) Illuminare – Centre for the Study of Medieval Art (KU Leuven) collaborates with Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam) and the Art & History Museum (Brussels). These institutions are currently in the process of organizing two complementing exhibitions on late medieval sculptures from the Low Countries, which will both take place in autumn 2021. One exposition will be held in Rotterdam, the other one will take place in Brussels. In this way, they will simultaneously explore the character, quality and diversity of late medieval sculptures from the Low Countries from two different angles. The research conducted beforehand, which is the scientific base of this exhibition, is funded by the VZW Pater David and the Chair for Medieval Sculpture in the Netherlands. Further information will soon be available here.
