CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Early Netherlandish drawings

Exhibition: 24 June 2002

In 2002, Flanders will witness a unique combination of exhibitions devoted to Flemish art of the Middle Ages. To accompany the show of early Netherlandish drawing in Antwerp, Marvels of Delight will host an international symposium.

24 June 2002 Kolveniershof, Antwerp – Belgium


To mark the various exhibitions in Antwerp devoted to Flemish medieval art, Marvels of Delight is organising an international research conference, in collaboration with the Centrum voor de Vlaamse Kunst van de 16de en 17de eeuw (Centre for 16th- and 17th-Century Flemish Art) and the Rubenianum. On 24 June 2002 specialists from across the world will report on the current state of research into the drawings of the Flemish Primitives.

The symposium will begin with an introduction by Prof. Dr. Fritz Koreny (Vienna University and the Corpus der deutschen und niederl䮤ischen Zeichnungen 1350-1500). After the symposium participants will have an opportunity to visit the ‘Early Netherlandish Drawings from Jan van Eyck to Hieronymus Bosch? exhibition in the Rubenshuis.

The conference is intended for specialists attached to museums or university research centres, but is also open to other persons interested in this subject.
