Hugo van der Goes (ca. 1440-1482/83) was one of the most important European painters of the early modern period. His monumental, emotionally expressive, yet also intimate depictions are among the highlights of their respective collections. Yet unlike most other great artists of his era, no monographic exhibition has ever been dedicated to this Flemish master. The Berlin Gemäldegalerie has now brought together the majority of his surviving works for the first time. To mark the end of the special exhibition Hugo van der Goes. Between Pain and Bliss (31 March – 16 July, 2023), the Gemäldegalerie and the Kaiser-Friedrich-Museumsverein are organizing an international colloquium on 14 and 15 July, 2023.
Please see the website of the Kaiser-Friedrich-Museumsverein for more information about the program, tickets and registration.
