CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

CODART Canon Reviewed in Neerlandia

An extensive and glowing review of the CODART Canon publication 100 Masterpieces of Dutch and Flemish Art appeared in Neerlandia.

The review is in Dutch, but it starts with an intriguing statement that is worth translating here: “Whoever dares to publish a canon today is a target for accusations. A canon is thought to be an ideological instrument of exclusion, a nationalist means of propaganda and a symptom of an old-fashioned urge of classification. That such a biased view of a canon is totally unfair is masterfully illustrated by the publication of the CODART Canon”. Why that is can be read in the book review by Ludo Beheydt, which we are allowed to offer with the author’s permission. Read it here.

The CODART Canon received generous attention in both Dutch media, as well as in foreign publications. A selection of reviews, announcements and podcasts about the CODART Canon can be found on this page.

Festive presentation of the Canon project on 4 November

On the afternoon of Thursday 4 November, we will present the Canon project during a festive gathering at The Mauritshuis. We are delighted that we, in partnership with the Flemish Representation in The Hague, are finally able to invite all members and friends of CODART to join us in celebrating the publication of the book and the launch of the website, and to thank all those who contributed.

CODART members and Friends of CODART have been invited for this event via email.  Please let us know before 28 October whether you will be able to attend.
