Charles the Bold. The Splendour of Burgundyhree Empires of Islam: Masterpieces of Ottoman, Safavid and Mughal Art from the Louvre Museum
Charles the Bold, the Duke of Burgundy, lived in mid-fifteenth century and was one of the most bellicose figures in Europe at the time. His goal was to make Burgundy into a great state, ranging from Bruges to Dijon.
The exhibition reconstructs the elegance and ceremony of the Burgundian court during the reign of Charles the Bold through paintings and handiworks which include velvet millefiori tapestries and an extremely valuable, perfectly preserved satin jacket.
