Chests and caskets from the Middle Ages - Collections of the Museum of Valais History by Corinne Charles and Claude Veuillet

Led under the auspices of the Museum of History, this pioneering study is the result of twenty years of research conducted by Corinne Charles (art historian) and Claude Veuillet (conservator-restorer) on the medieval furniture of the Valais collection. Nourished by research carried out across Europe, the first volume exposes the cultural, historical and technical context of the manufacture of the pieces. Richly illustrated, the second volume lists the catalogue raisonné of this body of furniture, which includes the prestigious carved liturgical chests of the church of Valère, one of the rare thirteenth-century ensembles preserved in the Western world.

The image of the woman in the Middle Ages, Bilbao Fine Arts

The Museum of Fine Arts in Bilbao hosts the Hay más en ti exhibition. Images of women of the Middle Ages (thirteenth-fifteenth centuries) gathering forty-eight works of art and pieces of everyday use that women used in the Middle Ages. The pieces become a witness and a reflection of the versatile image that women had at that time : they were embodying good and evil.

During the presentation of the exhibition, Dr. Corinne Charles, curator of the exhibition, warned that, to understand this versatile vision of women, we must take into account « that the iconographic production in the Middle Ages is dominated by men and especially by the clergy ». Thus, in addition to the woman as a model and ideal of virtue (incarnated in the figure of the Virgin Mary), she is also presented as the model of the one who incited to sin (which reflects the figure of Eve). « Misogyny was very important and prevalent at the time, especially in the religious field », as evidenced by the sculptures, altarpieces and religious texts that illustrate the exhibition and in which the woman is considered at the time both as the ideal model of mother and as the woman-incarnation of original sin.

The exhibition also features richly decorated cloth bags, trays, chests, caskets, manuscripts or beauty items, as well as other curious items such as a 19th century chastity belt or an erotic badge, representing a crowned feminine vulva, worn during processions by men.
