A new look at the Mourners from the Court of Burgundy

They will be coming to a town near you, but in the meantime check out The Mourners Photography Project website, hosted by FRAME (French Regional & American Museum Exchange). The website offers new digital high-resolution, 360° multi-perspective, and stereo 3D (anaglyph glasses required) views of the alabaster sculptures of monks and clerics that surround the tomb of John the Fearless (1371–1419) and his wife. These images have been created in conjunction with an unprecedented traveling exhibition of the figures, which until now have never been seen in their entirety outside of France. The exhibition stops in seven cities in the US, including LACMA from May 8-July 31, 2011.

In related news, ARTstor recently reached an agreement with FRAME to host approximately 1,600 images of these sculptures as well.
