We are happy to announce that three works from our collection will be part of the new exhibition ‘Hidden Gems. Seven centuries of Mechelen masterpieces’ at the Museum Hof van Busleyden.

Did you know that Frans Verbeeck and Hans Bol, both from Mechelen, made significant contributions to Flemish art history with works depicting peasant weddings? This subject was enormously popular in 15th and 16th-century. The exhibition at the Museum Hof van Busleyden will take its visitors to a timeless city where more than 100 works of art will reveal the rich history of Mechelen’s artistic landscape.

Wondering which other artwork from our collection will accompany the peasant weddings during Hidden Gems? Find out by visiting Museum Hof van Busleyden! More info available on the museum website.
