Flemish Masters 2018 - 2020

Definitely a highlight of the week every Wednesday evening

Episode 4 of the Stay At Home Museum is dedicated to James Ensor. Why did this innovator in modern art paint masks so often? Why did he keep his absolute masterpiece hidden for 30 years? Mieke Mels, curator of Mu.ZEE, tells you more about the work of Ensor - according to the director of the Getty Museum "a landmark in Western art history".
For the deaf and hearing-impaired art lover, this tour will be translated into International Sign.
So #stayhome and join our live tour Wednesday, April 29th at 7 PM (CET).
Followed by a live Q&A.

Flemish Masters 2018 - 2020

Episodes 1 (Van Eyck) and 2 (Bruegel) were well worth watching, so very much looking forward to this one!

Episode 3 of the Stay At Home Museum features a name that sounds like a legend: Rubens, the emperor of baroque painters. Ben Van Beneden, director of the Rubens House, will personally show you around the house where the artist lived and worked.
So be sure to #stayhome and join our live - and English spoken! - tour this Wednesday, April 22th at 7 PM (CET). Followed by a live Q&A.
