Author(s): Inès  Villela-Petit

€ 0.00 tax included

Despite the Hundred Years War, the Great Schism and the king’s bouts of insanity, France at the time of Charles VI (1380-1422) was bustling with exceptional artistic activity.

The kingdom was home to some of the main centers of creation for the “International Gothic” style that prevailed in Europe (Paris, Bourges, Dijon, Papal Avignon). Themes old and new complemented one another in the profusion of forms and the echoes between architecture and sculpture, precious metalwork and painting, tapestry and stained-glass.
