Arts and crafts in the fortress city
Arts and crafts in the public space change the perception of buildings and squares. They have always joined forces whenever the nobility, the bourgeoisie and the clergy wished to leave a legacy behind. But was this also the case in Luxembourg? Did foreign rulers express artistic ambitions when they settled in Luxembourg to continue the extension of the fortress? To what extent did citizens and church representatives act as patrons? What was the meaning of such artworks? To this day, if you look closely, you will discover art from all eras across the capital.
