Caermersklooster Provincial Centre of Art and Culture allows visitors to gain a better understanding of European history and artistic heritage. The highlight of this museum remains an exhibit dedicated to the restoration of the Ghent Altarpiece, attributed to Jan and Hubert van Eyck. Both major representatives of Early Netherlandish painting, the Eycks worked on this notable artwork in the 1420s and 1430s. The exhibit examines the restoration process and presents photographs, drawings, and X-rays taken to reveal the altarpiece's wooden base and many layers of paint applied by the Eyck brothers. Other displays discuss the birth of capitalism and the influence it had on the development and prosperity of Flanders. Caermersklooster Provincial Centre of Art and Culture is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
