A unique event

Celebrated works from the Musée Unterlinden’s collections are on view at the Dominican church until 18 October 2015

Due to renovation work in the former convent and until 11st December 2015, a unique event presents Grünewald and Nicolas de Haguenau’s Isenheim Altarpiece (1512–1516) alongside Martin Schongauer’s masterpiece The Madonna of the Rose Bower (1473) until the 18th October 2015. Furthermore, this event provides an unprecedented opportunity to view all three painted works by Martin Schongauer held in Colmar at a single venue, since the Orlier Altarpiece (1470–1475) and the Altarpiece of the Dominicans (c. 1480) are also exhibited at the Dominican church during this period. Two painted panels by Lucas Cranach the Elder (Melancholy and The Crucifixion), sculptures from the Late Middle Ages and works in silver and gold (including the famous grouping known as the Trésor des Trois-Epis) round out the presentation.

Lastly, two paintings from the museum’s modern art collection offer visitors the perspectives of two twentieth-century artists on sacred subjects: Veronica’s Veil by Alfred Manessier and Head of Christ by Otto Dix.
