Auf den Ceasarteppichen des Historisches Museums in Bern, entst. in Tournai um 1465/70, bilden die dargestelten Wolkenformationen Fische, Drachen und Schaefchen. Sind dies Beispiele fuer eine fruehe Kenntnis von Kunsttheorien der italienischen Renaissance noerdlich der Alpen? Mitnichten. Es handelt sich um daemonische Wesen, die der Vorstellungswelt des Mittelalters entstammen und das tragische Schicksal des Helden verfolgen.

Translation of abstract (English)

On the tapestry cycle depicting the legend of Julius Caesar, woven in Tournai around 1465/70, and now in the possession of the Historical Museum of Bern in Switzerland, we find images made by chance: Clouds in forms of dragons, fish, and sheep. Are theses images probably due to an early knowledge of art theories of the Italian Renaissance? Not at all. They are results of medieval ideas about the appearences of demons, watching Caesar's life and tragic end.
