The retable with the Lamentation from The Phoebus Foundation’s collection will be on display at The Art Institute of Chicago for the next three years. This rare masterpiece, originating from the Southern Netherlands and produced in the 15th century, was originally intended for private worship. Of the few examples with the Lamentation as the central motif, this unique piece will finally be accessible to a wider audience after a long time. A unique opportunity to learn about the artistic and devotional traditions of the period!
