Exhibition Early Altarpieces (12th-early 15th century) - A presentation of sacred art

from April 10, 2009 to July 6, 2009

Although central to Christian liturgical decoration, altarpieces did not emerge until the 12th century.

The exhibition recalls the origins of the genre and follows its evolution up to the early 15th century, when altarpieces assumed their more familiar forms.

Organized by: Pierre-Yves Le Pogam, département des Sculptures, musée du Louvre.
