Chapter Summary

Born in Nijmegen, sometime between 1385 and 1390, Herman, Paul, and Jean de Limbourg left for France around 1400, where they were to develop an outstanding reputation at the prestigious court of Philip the Bold, duke of Burgundy and later that of Jean, duc de Berry. The exhibition, inaugurated by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, was a unique cultural event in Nijmegen. The exhibition formed an excellent opportunity to invite prominent scholars to share their views on the art of the Limbourg brothers, during a two-day conference held in Nijmegen on November 17 and 18, 2005. The realization of the exhibition, the catalogue and the conference owed a great deal to wide-ranging and intensive international collaboration: some 65 museums, libraries, private collectors, churches and monasteries in Europe and the United States made a total of around 130 masterpieces available for this special presentation.
