Chapter Summary

One of the most rewarding results one can hope for when mounting an exhibition, is that grouping together or juxtaposing works of art will bring to light new relationships that hitherto have gone unnoticed, or have not been given the prominence they deserve. The exhibition The Limbourg Brothers Nijmegen Masters at the French Court (1400-1416), shown at Museum Het Valkhof in Nijmegen in the autumn of 2005, provided such an opportunity. The most important group of artist active between 1425 and 1440 were the masters of Zweder of Culemborg. Arguably the most remarkable illuminator, the Master of Catherine of Cleves had a large artistic vocabulary, borrowing not only from his Dutch colleagues, but also from Southern-Netherlandish painters. The relationship between miniatures painted in the Northern Netherlands and those painted by the Limbourg brothers is not purely compositional or iconographical.
