"Hôtel-Dieu - Salle du Polyptyque" Top 5 Page for this destination Hospices de Beaune Tip by Mikebond
Hospices de Beaune, Beaune: 37 reviews and 114 photos
The most important room of the Hôtel-Dieu from the artistic point of view is certainly the Salle du Polyptyque, whose name comes from Rogier van der Weyden's famous polyptych The Last Judgement. Nicolas Rolin, the founder of the hospital, commissioned it to the Flemish painter in 1443.
If you like art, you will be supposingly amazed when you see this painting. The strong red colour of Christ's show up very well in the darkness of the room. A movable magnifying lens has been provided, so that you can watch all the details.
In the room, you will observe other pieces of art, as well as tapestries, like the one you see in the last picture of this tip.
Address: rue de l'Hôtel-Dieu
