Permanent event

The Early Gothic Hall at The Cloisters reopened in the Spring of 2006 after a five-year renovation. Completely refurbished 13th-century limestone windows and two dozen panels of newly conserved and reinstalled stained glass, primarily from the 13th- and 14th-centuries, are among the objects on view. Four recently acquired and exceptional examples of German stained glass from the late-13th century glazing program for the convent church in Altenberg-an-der-Lahn are reunited in this new installation. The renovation of the Early Gothic Hall also features construction of two new limestone apertures in an interior wall (for the display of grisaille glass windows) and new lighting. The display in this room constitutes the largest and most varied group of 13th- and 14th-century panels outside Europe. Also returned to view are more than a dozen important Gothic sculptures and paintings from the Museum’s permanent collection, including the lifesize Virgin from the choir screen of Strasbourg Cathedral (mid-13th century) and a recently acquired late 13th-century head also from the region of Strasbourg on the Upper Rhine. As a result of a new protective glazing program installed along the exterior wall, rare examples of Gothic stained glass are now illuminated by natural daylight, as they were originally meant to be seen.
