OP CLAUS SLUTER EN BOURGOGNE: MYTHE ET REPRESENTATIONS (Claus Sluter in Burgundy: Myth and Representations). Musee des Beaux-Arts, Dijon, 1990. 62 pp. with 8 ills. and 5 loose col. plates. 30 x 21 cm. ISBN 2900462525 In French.
This slim catalogue commemorates the 600th anniversary of three famous works created by Dutch-born sculptor Claus Sluter (ca. 1350-1406) for the Chartreuse de Champmol monastery near Dijon -- a group of figures for the chapel portal, a monumental sculptural base known as the Well of Moses, and a complex cenotaph for the artist's Burgundian patron, Philip the Bold (1342-1404) -- which signify in their naturalism an important transition from Late Gothic to Early Renaissance art. Twelve concise scholarly essays discuss the significance of Sluter's oeuvre; the featured works and the archaeological and archival records of their lost sculptural elements; the contributions of Jean de Marville, who preceded Sluter as the monastery's master sculptor; and the character and themes of Burgundian art of the period.
