Exhibition "Splendour and glory of the Middle Ages, Koln Germany


This is just a quick post to tell you about the Exhibition "Splendour and glory of the Middle Ages", in the beautiful Schnutgen Museum in Koln, Germany.

In their own words: "In its heyday from 1000 to 1550, Cologne was one of Europe‘s leading art centres. Today, the master- pieces stemming from this creative period are scattered throughout the great museums of the world. However, around 160 superb works from, among others, Berlin, Bonn, Darmstadt, Budapest, London, Vienna, Paris, Lisbon, New York, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington, Cleveland, Chicago and Los Angeles are now returning to the Rhine River and will be on exhibit with 60 works from the museum‘s own collection. The Museum Schnütgen will be presenting great works from Cologne‘s best period in a superlative special exhibition - but only for a short while"

I hope to visit the exhibition this weekend, and of course I'll write about that. I'm really interested in the piece of embroidery shown above :-)
