CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Symposium: North & South. Medieval Altar Decorations from Norway and Catalunya (1100-1350)

Symposium: 23 January - 24 January 2020

Museum Catharijneconvent, in collaboration with the University of Utrecht, TEMPLA, and Réseau des Musées d’Art Médieval de l’Europe, warmly invites you to join us for a symposium on the occasion of the exhibition North & South. During the symposium research results will be presented and discussed. Scholars from different parts of Europe will be involved in this colloquium.

Both in the far North and deep South of Europe medieval art works have survived that are remarkably similar despite the great distance that separates them. We succeeded in having these rare works of art from the period 1100-1350 travel on this single occasion from Catalonia and Norway to Utrecht. From 25 October 2019 until 26 January 2020 visitors are able to enjoy their astonishing beauty and similarity in style. It is an absolute ‘must see’ because art from this early period has hardly survived in Central Europe.

For the program and to register, see the Catherijneconvent website.
