Three Angels. (detail from the Crucifixion Altarpiece from the 14th century, Dijon)

Sometimes I wonder… Where can you find such craftsmanship today?

This is an Altarpiece made in the 14th century. Carved by Jacques de Baerze and painted by Melchior Broederlam. Two flemish primitives in service to Philip the Bold, Duke of Burgundy. 

The museum, le musée du beaux arts Dijon  has a free entrance, located in a beautiful city in the middle of Europe.
