En el transcurso del siglo XV, la reputación de la corte borgoñona se elevó a unos niveles sin precedentes, catapultada por las crecientes ambiciones territoriales y la acumulación de riqueza. Esta situación llegó a su clímax durante el reinado de Carlos el Temerario (1433-1477), encarnación viviente de la pompa y el boato de la corte borgoñona y generoso mecenas de las bellas artes. En lugar de centrarse en un único tema, este volumen pretende arrojar luz sobre la cultura de la corte de Borgoña como un todo orgánico, desde los inicios del reinado de Felipe el Bueno (1419) hasta la muerte de María de Borgoña (1482).
