The 100 most beautiful drawings
The museum’s own collection forms the basis for this exhibition, but it is complemented by masterpieces from other Flemish public and private collections. It is a unique opportunity to see these masterpieces side by side. Several have never been shown to the public before, including the 10 meters long Panorama of Zeeland by Anthonis van den Wijngaerde, the extremely rare Italy-sketchbooks by the sculptor Pieter Verbruggen and a newly discovered book-illustration design by Rubens for the Plantin Press. The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication that visualizes and contextualizes the exhibition’s overview of Flanders' most beautiful drawings.
