Tombs of Jean sans Peur, or John the Fearless, 1371-1419, Duke of Burgundy, and his wife Marguerite de Baviere, or Margaret of Bavaria, 1363- 1423, 1443-70, by Jean de la Huerta and Antoine le Moiturier, and behind, tomb of Philippe le Hardi, or Philip the Bold, 1342-1404, Duke of Burgundy, 1381-1410, by Jean de Marville, Claus Sluter et Claus de Werve, in the Grande Salle du Palais des ducs de Bourgogne, or Salle des Gardes, in the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, opened 1787 in the Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy in Dijon, Burgundy, France. The tombs consist of painted alabaster effigies with lions and angels, and below, figures of pleurants or weepers among Gothic tracery. The Guardroom, a large ceremonial and banquet hall, was built 1450-55 by Philippe le Bon, or Philip the Good, 1396-1467, Duke of Burgundy, in Flamboyant Gothic style. The tombs were originally from the Chartreuse de Champmol, or Chartreuse de la Sainte-Trinite de Champmol, a Carthusian monastery which was sacked in the French Revolution and the tombs moved to Dijon cathedral then here in 1827. The effigies are 19th century reconstructions, the originals being destroyed in the French Revolution. Picture by Manuel Cohen
