CODART proudly presents its autumn issue of the CODART eZine. The eZine is an interactive digital newsletter on Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide. For the eighth issue of the eZine we explored the theme art and architecture, in the broadest sense of the term. From the architectural plans in Belgian collections to the reconstruction of Museum Het Valkhof, with the aid of paintings, drawings, and prints. From the curious use of Dutch tiles in Polish palaces, bath-houses, and chapels to the appointment of a “curator of the building” at Museum Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder.
