On Monday 13 December, through an initiative of the Flemish ArtCollection and the Groeningemuseum, several international experts will elaborate on their insights concerning the exhibition. This one-day conference promises to be an exciting exploration of the artistic relationships between the Low Countires and the Holy Roman Empire – currenlty Central Europe—in the 15th and 16th centuries. The focus will be on the diffusion of techniques and stylistic characteristics, the dispersion of artists and art works, the impact of the type of realism and the adherence to nature that is so typical of the painters of the ars nova, the dispersion of motifs, and the role of drawn copies and prints.
