A comprehensive medieval exhibition in Amsterdam

Johan Maelwael was active in the courts of Philip the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, and his successor John the Fearless during the late-14th century. He was also responsible for introducing his nephews, legendary miniature painters the Limbourg brothers to Duke Philip, who ransomed them out of captivity for Maelwael’s sake. At the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Maelwael’s paintings will be exhibited alongside medieval artwork, metalwork, sculptures and manuscripts, courtesy of the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the MET in New York and the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, among others.
