Borman was a virtuoso, a master but above all an innovator, who influenced many other sculptors.

“The Best Sculptor” is how Jan II Borman is described in a document dating from 1513. Ever since, Borman the man and his oeuvre are shrouded in mist. This late-medieval sculptor managed a busy workshop in Brussels, with commissions pouring in from religious institutions as well as from the bourgeoisie and princely rulers. He trained his sons Jan III and Passchier to become master sculptors after his own example and to have at least as shrewd a head for business as he himself. Borman was a virtuoso, a master but above all an innovator, who influenced many other sculptors. His iconic works are kept in the world’s greatest museums and churches. The book gathers essays by leading academics and presents a summary catalogue of all works attributed to the Borman family.
