One of the leading sculptors in the late gothic style, Riemenschneider was best-known for his work in wood and stone. This exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art (26 March–23 July) brings together his lesser-known creations in alabaster, including examples produced for St Peter’s church in Erfut, Germany, such as the intricately detailed Saint Jerome and the Lion (c. 1495) and The Virgin Mary of the Annunciation, on loan from the Louvre. Alabaster works by other artists from the same period are also on display; they include monuments created for the tomb of Duke Philip the Bold, Duke of Burgundy (1364–1404) by Claus de Werve, a Dutch sculptor active at the Burgundian court.
