Detail of Adam from the Ghent Altarpiece by Jan van Eyck, 1432

Episode 1: Jan van Eyck

“Van Eyck expo closed? Not for you! Curator Borchert guides you personally past Van Eyck’s masterpieces. In your own living room you stand eye to eye with the “Adoration of the Mystic Lamb”, the “Portrait of a Man with a Blue Chaperon” and other stunning highlights in the history of painting. Want more? The “Stay At Home Museum” also brings Bruegel, Rubens and other world-class Flemish painters to your home. Every week another art expert knocks on your door for a guided tour.”

Episode 2 : Bruegel

“Bruegel was a 16th century superstar and he still holds star status in the world of art today. Admire the masterpieces that formerly graced the walls of emperors and queens from the comfort of your own living room.

Speaking of VIPS, your guide is none other than museum director Michel Draguet. He will be your companion as you step inside Bruegel’s painting, ‘The Fall of the Rebel Angels’.

An experience you can’t afford to miss!”

Episode 3: Rubens

“This time around, you will be the guest of Rubens, the emperor of Baroque painters. Ben Van Beneden, the director of the Rubens House, welcomes you to the home where the artist lived and worked. Take a stroll through the garden where Rubens found inspiration, admire his art room, and step into the master’s inner sanctum – his workshop. En route, you be able to see a cornucopia of masterpieces, including Rubens’s famous self-portrait.

In the fourth episode, you will learn more about James Ensor’s work, which the director of the Getty Museum calls ‘a landmark in Western art history’.”
