REUNION. From Quinten Metsijs to Peter Paul Rubens. Masterpieces from the Royal Museum reunited in the Cathedral

Reuni © Johannes Vande Voorde

In 1559 the Church of Our Lady was re-baptized the Cathedral of Our Lady. An anniversary that will be celebrated with the prestigious exhibition REUNION. During its 450-year existence, the Cathedral has become a veritable treasury of religious art, which was painted and sculpted by renowned masters. Until the French Revolution, they were commissioned with decorating the pillars, chapels and walls of the Cathedral. In the wake of this upheaval, several altarpieces were transferred to museums, among which the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp.
