Susie Nash: “Seeing God and the Duke: The Charterhouse of Champmol"

December 19, 2018

Alex Gordon Lecture in the History of Art: "Seeing God and the Duke: The Charterhouse of Champmol" by Susie Nash, The Courtauld Institute of Art

The Charterhouse of Champmol in Dijon was founded in the 1380s as a ducal mausoleum by Philip the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, and it became home to an astonishing array of paintings and sculpture. This lecture considers how some of these images, particularly the monumental sculpture of Claus Sluter, were installed, experienced, and protected — both by the resident Carthusians and the dukes who patronized them.
