"The Mourners" at Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is currently hosting the exhibition The Mourners: Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgundy, one of the masterpieces of late medieval sculpture in Europe. The exhibit will run January 21, 2012 through April 15, 2012.

From the museum website:

The elaborate tombs of the dukes of Burgundy are among the masterpieces of late medieval sculpture in Europe. The Mourners: Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgundy presents thirty-seven alabaster mourners, considered embodiments of late medieval devotion and piety. They convey powerful emotion, some lost in thought or giving vent to their grief, and others consoling their neighbors. Mourning, they remind us, is a collective experience, common to all people and all moments in history.
 
Free admission.

VMFA is the final venue in the United States, and when the sculptures return to the Musée des Beaux-arts de Dijon in 2012, they will be permanently repositioned in the tomb setting.
