|The visual arts produced by 15th century northern Europe appear very different in style from the Renaissance works launched in Italy during that century. What they had in common, however, was an intense interest in the observation of nature, evident in the beautiful manuscript 'The Book of Hours' by the Limbourg Brothers, the Flemish Unicorn tapestry and the famous Merode altarpiece. We will examine major works of this era that record and detail the natural world as never before, many of which can be seen at the Cloisters in New York City.|
