Modern Devotion, Neoclassicism and Biedermeier at De Fundatie
On December 31, 2011, Maarten and I visited Museum de Fundatie in Zwolle. We saw two exhibitions.
The first was about the Modern Devotion, a religious movement from late medieval and rennaissance times: 'Van Albrecht Dürer en Thomas a Kempis : kunst en handschriften uit de tijd van de moderne devotie' (Of Albrecht Dürer and Thomas a Kempid : Art and manuscripts from the tome of the Modern Devotion). The link between the Modern Devotion and the art of that time is the central role of the passions of Christ. The exhibition showed the role Zwolle + region had as a center of book production, book illumination and the ideas of Modern Devotion.
Some of the wall texts had a nice golden initial, matching the illuminated manuscripts on display. E-books enabled visitors to see other pages of the books that were on display.
