The golden age of Rhenish art
A remarkable collection of 15th and 16th century Rhenish art is to be found in the nave of the former Dominican convent’s chapel, which is an integral part of the Unterlinden Museum. The choir is entirely dedicated to the Issenheim Altarpiece (1512-1516) by Grünewald and Nicolas de Haguenau. At the end of the 15th century, Colmar was a prosperous city with many renowned painters and sculptors. The “Deploration of Christ” (left wall) and the “Baptism of Christ” (right wall) are two anonymous sculptures from Colmar workshops (early 16th century). They decorated the church of the Récollets in Rouffach and the church of the Franciscans in Colmar.
