Between 2010 and 2012, FRAME brought 39 celebrated masterpieces of medieval Burgundian sculpture to seven museums across the United States. The Mourners: Tomb Sculpture from the Court of Burgundy, consists of sculptures from the tomb of John the Fearless (1342-1404), the second duke of Burgundy. His elaborate tomb, once housed at a monastery on the outskirts of Dijon, is now one of the centerpieces of the Musée des Beaux-Arts of Dijon which, with the Dallas Museum of Art, organized the exhibition.

The Mourners: Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgundy was organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, under the auspices of FRAME. The exhibition in the US was supported by a leadership gift from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Florence Gould Foundation, the Eugene McDermott Foundation, Connie Goodyear Baron, and Boucheron. Major corporate support is provided by Bank of the West, Member BNP Paribas Group. This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and Humanities.
