CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Three to See

After the success of the CODART 24 congress last spring, we returned to Antwerp on 27 November 2023. The Belgian city formed the backdrop for three diverse exhibitions. During the CODARTfocus Antwerp we studied the exhibitions Turning Heads. Bruegel, Rubens and Rembrandt at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts (KMSKA), From Scribble to Cartoon: Drawings from Bruegel to Rubens at Museum Plantin-Moretus, and Rare and Indispensable: 100 Masterpieces from Flemish Collections at the MAS.

We started at the MAS where Ben van Beneden en Thomas Leysen, who curated Rare and Indispensable, gave a guided tour through the exhibition. After lunch, we headed to Museum Plantin-Moretus where Virginie D’haene, curator of From Scribble to Cartoon, guided us through the exhibited drawings. Both museums were closed to the public during our visits. At the KMSKA, Koen Bulckens told us more about the exhibition Turning Heads after which there was time to visit the exhibition at your own leisure. More information about the exhibitions and their curators can be found here.

This event was a collaboration between CODART, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA), Museum Plantin-Moretus and the MAS and was made possible by the generous support of the Flemish Government and the KMSKA.
