VAN EYCK AND THE ADORATION OF THE MYSTIC LAMB: MY TRIP TO FLANDERS TO DISCOVER A MASTERPIECE

That Flanders was a place full of art I’ve already understood last year, when I visit it for a tour to discover the Flemish painting, as I told you in the post Flemish painting: a tour among the masterpieces of Flanders. So, when I was invited to come back to Belgium for a trip following in the footsteps of van Eyck and his most important masterpiece I immediately accepted.
