"The Museum's medieval collection is focused on French and German Romanesque (c.1050-c.1200) and Gothic (c.1200-c.1500) art. Highlights include a French sculpture of St. Christopher, a superb alabaster Madonna, an exquisite sculpted head of St. Roch, and a gilded figure of Christ, made in Germany, of exceptional quality."
