In this episode of Phoebus Focus, you will discover everything about the garden of Eden, political propaganda, Archdukes Albrecht and Isabella, and the gardens of the Coudenberg Palace. But what do they all have to do with each other? Dr Katharina Van Cauteren, chief of staff of The Phoebus Foundation, and Koen Fillet take you to the imaginative 17th-century depiction of paradise by Hendrick De Clerck and Denijs Van Alsloot. The painting reveals an abundance of religious, artistic, and political information.
