CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

New Issue of Simiolus (Vol. 43 nr. 1-2) Published

The latest issue of Simiolus has appeared. The issue brings contributions on a broad range of subjects from four different countries, one of them presenting a previously unpublished and unknown Van Eyck document, another our first-ever contribution from St Petersburg.
