EXPERIENCE THE FLEMISH MASTERS - Programme 2018-2020
The Flemish Masters project focuses on the life and legacy of several 15th, 16th and 17th century artists who were based in Flanders, particularly Rubens, Bruegel and the Flemish Primitives, including Van Eyck.
While many of the works by these Flemish Masters can be admired all over the world, the experience is most powerful in the unique setting of Flanders, where the work was created. You can stroll around the historic setting in which Rubens lived, wander through the landscapes that inspired Pieter Bruegel the elder, and discover a painting by Van Eyck in the exact location it was painted for.
Significant infrastructure investments are being made throughout Flanders as we realize how important high-quality tourist services are in delivering an optimal visitor experience. Futhermore, a programme of high-quality events and permanent exhibitions with international appeal will be organized throughout 2018, 2019 and 2020.
