The masterpieces of Bruges: the works of the Flemish Masters and the Flemish Primitives - Arte.it

The resplendent season of the Flemish Primitives began in Flanders with the birth of the revolutionary school of painters, which with the Italian Florentine Renaissance was the leader in the world of European figurative arts of the fifteenth century.

From Robert Campin, also known as The Master of Flémalle (Valenciennes, 1378/1379 - Tournai, 1444) and Jan van Eyck (Maaseik, c. 1390 - Bruges, June 1441) to Gerard David (Oudewater, c. 1460 - Bruges, 1523) , by Hans Memling (Seligenstadt, circa 1436 - Bruges, 1494) and Hieronymus Bosch ('s-Hertogenbosch, 1453 -' s-Hertogenbosch, 1516) to the Great Flemish Masters Pieter Bruegel the Elder (Breda, circa 1525/1530 - Brussels, 1569), Pieter Paul Rubens (Siegen, 1577 - Antwerp, 1640).

In honor of those generations of artists, the city's Civic Museums circuit (Musea Brugge) offers a complete immersion in their extraordinary work, discovering the history of Bruges, thanks to a single path that starts from the newly renovated Gruuthuse Museum and passes through the main city museums, above all the Groeninge Museum and the & nbsp; Sint-Janshospitaal-Memlingmuseum.
