Dominicanenkerk, Maastricht

In 2008, the late fourteenth century wall paintings in the Domincanenkerk were restored. The paintings date from the second half of the fourteenth century and depict, among other things, the life of St. Thomas Aquinas. The refined painting technique and realistic representation of the images are of high quality. In the Low Countries few wall or panel paintings of similar style and quality from this period have survived.

To help the viewer distinguish between different images, an old picture by Johannes van Brabant (preserved in the RHCL) is projected in a unique manner onto the painting. Furthermore, an information unit, placed below the wallpainting, explains its significance, dating and restoration. To give a good impression of the once very vivid and bright colours of the painting a reconstruction using original materials was made.
