With Koen Fillet and Leen Kelchtermans, researcher at The Phoebus Foundation

In this episode, we dive into the fascinating world of Baroque self-portraits. Together with Dr Leen Kelchtermans, we discover more about the fascinating dynamic created when artists are both the model and creator of a work of art. Furthermore, we highlight why they immortalise themselves, and where they look for inspiration. A unique look into the artistic masterminds of the past!
