The heritage of Rogier van der Weyden: Painting in Brussels 1450-1520

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts devotes an exhibition to painting in Brussels from the late 15th century to the first years of the 16th century, specifically in the period between the death of early Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden (1464) and the activity of Flemish Northern Renaissance painter Bernard van Orley (1515-1541).

During that era Brussels was a thriving town surrounded by palaces whose courtiers and noble families were committed patrons of the arts.

The result of recent research and ongoing studies, the exhibition presents a general overview of painting in Brussels from that time, examining the subject from historical, iconographic, stylistic, technical and economic viewpoints. 

Tues-Sun 10.00-17.00
