Room Late Gothic, Northern Europe

Denon wing - Lower ground floor - Room 169 - Late Gothic

France, Middle Ages

The Late Gothic style persisted in 16th-century German and Dutch art up until the Reformation. German sculptors favored expressive, realistic figures with lively, angular, unnaturalistic drapery, reflecting the contrasting moods of medieval spirituality. Dutch artists focused on the representation of narrative. The works shown here are all religious in origin, many from polychrome wooden altarpieces. The early northern European Renaissance is also represented.
