Travel Tips for Beaune

Polyptyque "Jugement Dernier"

by breughel

Rogier Van de Weyden aussi appelé Roger de la Pasture, né à Tournai vers 1400, mort à Bruxelles dont il était le peintre officiel est un de ces peintres du XVe siècle qu'en Belgique nous appelons "Primitifs Flamands" depuis le milieu du XIXe siècle pour les distinguer chronologiquement des peintres Flamands des XVIe (P. Bruegel e.a.) et XVIIe (P. Rubens e.a) et géographiquement de l'école Hollandaise.

Van der Weyden, élève de van Eyck, n'avait rien d'un primitif comme on peut voir de cet immense retable (5,46 m de long sur 2,25 m de haut) comportant 15 panneaux.
L'œuvre fut réalisée entre 1443 et 1450. Elle fut perdue de vue après la Révolution, seulement retrouvée en 1836, magnifiquement restaurée, voyez l'éclat des couleurs rouges. Cette œuvre est aujourd'hui classée "monument historique".
L'œuvre a été abondamment décrite, donc inutile de recommencer ici.

Personnellement je trouve admirable le réalisme allié à la beauté des visages. Et puis il n'y a pas un seul démon du côté de l'enfer.

J'en ai fait quelques photos que je présente ici en un travelogue.

=================================

"Last Judgement" by Van der Weyden.

Rogier Van de Weyden also called Roger de la Pasture, born in Tournai about 1400, death in Brussels where he was the official city painter, is one of these 15th century painters called "Flemish primitives" to distinguish them chronologically from the Flemish painters of 16th c. (P. Bruegel a.o.) and 17th c. (P. Rubens a.o.) and geographically from the Dutch school.

Van der Weyden had nothing from a primitive as one can see from this immense polyptych (5,46 m length on 2,25 m in height) comprising 15 panels.
The painting was carried out between 1443 and 1450. It was lost after the Revolution, only found back in 1836, magnificently restored; see the glare of the red colours.
This work is today classified “historical monument”.
This "Last Judgement" polyptych was abundantly described; I don't see the need to start again here.

I found admirable the realism and beauty of the faces. Furthermore there is not one demon on the side of the hell. The humans are the only responsible for the good and bad.

I made some photographs which I present here in a travelogue.

Couvent des Cordeliers - Wine cellar

by breughel

There are many wine cellars even wine museums that one can visit in Beaune.
The "Musée des Vins" has already been described here and I was not really interested tasting wine "à jeun" on an empty stomach as it was morning.

Next to the Hôtel-Dieu is located the "Couvent des Cordeliers" from the 13th c. The entrance is rue de l'Hôtel-Dieu 6, having passed under a porch one enters the central garden surrounded by a gallery. The Franciscan Cordeliers were a mendicant order. The history of the convent is explained by documents.

The visit is free; there is a cellar to be visited but this cellar is not effectively used to store wine, the gaskets are filled with water. The owners of the "Cave des Cordeliers" are traditional "négociants" wine merchants. The exhibit of the wines is in the former Salle du Chapitre - Chapter hall. Tasting the wines is possible: 5 wines plus an engraved glass for 7€.

Like all "cellars" or "wine museums" in Beaune the aim is to sell wine. Advice is of course always very professional. We bought some Pommard to drink with game.
Average prices between 25 and 35 €/bottle.

Open : 9.30 - 11.30 & 14.30 - 17.30 h, most of the year.

A history of wine

by reenby

Beaune is a wine town, steeped in its production and its history.

There is enough to see and do to fill in a pleasant day or two, with the bonus of good wine with dinner in the evening. The town has many eating places to choose from, from pizzas to gastronomique and prices to match.

There are many wine tasting options scattered around, from simple taste and buy, to more educational events where you can learn about what you are tasting.
