Musée Unterlinden

Colmar, France

Housed in a former convent dating back to the 13th century, the Musée Unterlinden displays a remarkable group of paintings and sculptures from the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It possesses one of the greatest works of Western art: the Isenheim Altarpiece, executed between 1512 and 1516 by Nicolaus of Haguenau and Grünewald. The museum’s collection of decorative art objects includes silver and gold treasures as well as an exceptional group of hunting and military weapons. Its archaeology section offers a nearly complete overview of the early development of human society, with objects from everyday life (Bergheim mosaic, 3rd century AD) or funerary contexts (gold jewellery from a princely sepulchre).
