Sept 11-Nov 7 2010 - Juan de Flandes Exhibition

The Antwerp Museum Mayer van den Bergh presents an exhibition in which the four side panels of the Miraflores altarpiece by Juan de Flandes, a Flemish Primitive active in Spain, are reunited for the first time in centuries. One of the panels was recently rediscovered and was given, along with another panel, a conservation-restoration treatment at IRPA/KIK. The story of this intriguing restoration is disclosed in words and images. A complementary setup lets you get acquainted with the materials and instruments used by the Flemish Primitives, and with those of contemporary restorers of old painting.

Exhibition Juan de Flandes en het Mirafloresretabel - Gesignaleerd en opgespoord, until November 7 2010.
