Simon Bening was the most prestigious painter and illuminator of the 16th century. Among his most famous clients were the Emperor Charles V and Fernando, Prince of Portugal. Today, these works are conserved in the Real Monasterio de El Escorial, The British Museum, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, among others.
International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.
If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
