Their work is world famous and their influence was huge, but for a long time the artists themselves were virtually unknown. Even their home town has forgotten them. But no medieval paintings seem as familiair in our time as the works of the Limbourg Brothers. In more than 700 amazing miniatures they rendered an encyclopaedic picture of their world. This film gives a face to the artists that gave the Middle Ages a face.
