Bruegel, Unseen Masterpieces (Royal Museum of Fine Arts)
Twelve of Bruegel’s masterpieces, to be found in some of the most prestigious museums in the world, are presented in high-definition detail thanks to technology provided by the Google Cultural Institute. Drawing on a wide spectrum of virtual and on-site experiences, this unique initiative offers visitors the chance to immerse themselves in Bruegel’s works by honing in on the fi ner elements of each painting, and accessing expert knowledge. By delving deeper into the artist’s world, the viewer will discover the unexpected elements in Bruegel’s works that constitute the pinnacle of the Flemish master’s craft. So while the artist and his paintings may be instantly recognisable, every painting has a whole host of characteristics - some familiar, others surprising - that are masterpieces worthy of exploration in their own right.
Initiated by the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium with the Google Cultural Institute, the project is a precursor to the Bruegel House, which will open its doors to the public in 2019 in the heart of Brussels.
The 'Bruegel. Unseen Masterpieces virtual exhibitions' can be accessed on the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium’s interactive screens, on their mobile app and on the Google Cultural Institute platform.
