A prestigious setting for the famous Issenheim Altarpiece! A nearly complete spectrum of art is on display in this splendid convent that has become a museum.

"Famous for its celebrated Issenheim altarpiece, Unterlinden is one of France's most popular museums. Founded in the 13th century in a place called ""under the Linden tree"", it became one of the largest monasteries in Alsace and was only converted into a museum in the 19th century. It offers a rich collection of sculptures and paintings from the late Middle Ages to the early Renaissance period and is home to the sacred art masterpiece, the Issenheim altarpiece painted by Grünewald (1512 -1516), a master of late Gothic art. The artwork is composed of painted panels set around a central box displaying sculpted figures. The museum also houses decorative and popular art works including ceramics, pewter, wrought iron, furniture and silverware. Finally, a modern art section illustrates some of the great avant-garde trends from impressionism to the mid-20th century."
