CODART Presents the Canon to Dutch Ambassador in Brussels and Secretary of Culture to the Flemish Government

On Tuesday 25 May, CODART director Maartje Beekman presented the CODART Canon publication 100 Masterpieces of Dutch and Flemish Art to Pieter Jan Kleiweg de Zwaan, the Netherlands Ambassador to Belgium and to Joachim Pohlmann, Secretary of Culture to the Flemish Government. During an intimate gathering at the Ambassador’s residence in Brussels we proudly presented the Canon project, which includes the publication and a comprehensive website, and celebrates the richness of our shared culture.

If all goes well, we will celebrate the occasion again in the presence of our members and friends during a festive event this fall. For now, we wish to thank the Ambassador for his hospitality and generosity, and thank the Flemish Government and Friends of CODART Foundation as well for supporting the CODART Canon project.
