The Dijon Altarpiece

Tempera on wood, 167 x 249 cm

At the request of Philip the Bold, Broederlam painted both the outer panels and inner polychrome decoration of at least two altarpieces sculpted by Jacques de Baerze, that were intended for the chartreuse de Champmol. Of these two altarpieces, only that in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Dijon still features its painted outer panels. They represent four biblical scenes: on the left, The Annunciation and The Visitation; on the right, The Presentation of Christ and The Flight into Egypt.
