See the most complete surviving example of a Gothic table fountain—a medieval mechanical device with moving parts that spouted (sometimes perfumed) water. The Cleveland fountain, datable to about 1320–40, is internationally recognized as a stunning piece of Gothic architecture in miniature, with parapets, arcades, vaults, pinnacles, columns, and arches with tracery. Experience this unique and special object alongside important international loans, including Jan van Eyck’s rarely seen "Madonna at the Fountain".
