This exhibition is devoted to two masterpieces by the Burgundian court painter from Bruges: Madonna with Canon Joris Van der Paele and Portrait of his wife Margaretha van Eyck. The exhibition will familiarise you with Jan van Eyck’s Bruges period and uses authentic documents to demonstrate what kind of lifestyle the artist led in Bruges and where he lived. The exhibition also focuses on Joris van der Paele who had an impressive career at the Roman Curia during the extremely turbulent 15th century. He bore witness to the power-games which were played out between the pope and the antipope and was involved with negotiations concerning the Hundred Years’ War and the councils.
