Angel from the tomb of Jean sans Peur, or John the Fearless, 1371-1419, (Jean de Valois or John of Valois, Jean I, duc de Bourgogne, or John I, Duke of Burgundy) and his wife Marguerite de Baviere, or Margaret of Bavaria, 1363- 1423, 1443-70, by Jean de la Huerta, 1413-62, and Antoine le Moiturier, 1425-97, in the Grande Salle du Palais des ducs de Bourgogne, or Salle des Gardes, a 15th century Flamboyant Gothic hall, in the Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, opened 1787 in the Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy in Dijon, Burgundy, France. The tomb consists of painted alabaster effigies with lions and angels, and below, figures of pleurants or weepers among Gothic tracery. The tomb was begun in 1443 (24 years after his death), by Jean de La Huerta, and Antoine le Moiturier after 1456, and finally installed in 1470. 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
