Art Around the World - Flemish Masters

“Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.” ― René Magritte

In this +With Friends series we travel virtually to Flanders, in modern day Belgium, to learn about the birth and evolution of the Northern Renaissance.

In Week 1's introduction to the Flemish Masters we took a Google Earth tour of picture-perfect Bruges, retracing Luca's recent visit to the perfectly preserved Medieval town. We explored at leisure, the iconic Van Eyck Arnolfini Portrait. What a mystery: Wedding portrait of a young couple? Posthumous portrait of a beloved wife? The icons help tell the story and the detailed rendering reveal an intriguing jewel-like masterpiece of 1434, now on show at the National Gallery in London.

In Week 2, we’ll Zoom to Brussels on the footsteps of Pieter Bruegel, the enigmatic master who is largely responsible for the creation of Flanders’ national psyche and collective consciousness as “hard working yet bon vivant.” In his paintings of landscapes and picturesque villages bustling with life the boundary between real and fantastic is blurred in his apocalyptic religious and mythical visions.

Let’s explore!
