Summer with www.artinflanders.be5 Jul 2021
This summer, there are various places in the country where you can enjoy images from our image database: www.artinflanders.be. These high-resolution images are bringing art to the general public in an amazing way. Want to find out about The Lamb of God in augmented reality? Or fancy walking around looking at 360° projections of Flemish masterpieces? Then make sure you visit the exhibitions below.
The lifelike Lamb of God
St Bavo’s Cathedral in Ghent is home to the Lamb of God altarpiece – probably the most famous polyptych from the Low Countries and surrounding areas. Why not enjoy this painting’s eventful history and the cathedral where it lives this summer? Augmented reality – an interactive experience that creates the illusion of an added layer – is enhancing the historical narrative with 3D images of the Lamb of God, developed using detailed gigapixel photographs from our image database.
Van Eyck in the spotlight
If you’re in Ghent, make sure you also pay a visit to the other famous tower: St Nicholas’ Church, where you can marvel at Lights on Van Eyck, a light and sound experience that immerses you in this Flemish Master’s oeuvre. The gigapixel photographs of the Lamb of God are also enhancing the experience here, albeit in a completely different way, with detailed images catching the eye thanks to life-size projections on the church walls and vaults.
Rendezvous with three Flemish Masters
You can also discover content from our image database at the Dynasty Palace in Brussels this summer. The Meet the Masters art experience highlights the oeuvres of artists Pieter Paul Rubens, Pieter Bruegel and Jan Van Eyck in a very special way – using video mapping and 360° projections to highlight impressive details and bring the works by these three Flemish Masters to life.
Belgian paintings in 60 minutes
You can still visit Het Kunstuur (‘The Art Hour’) in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit in Mechelen until the end of September. In the space of one hour, famous and less well-known Flemish people tell their stories about Belgian masterpieces from 1880-1950. Enjoy the work of artists James Ensor, Rik Wouters and Jenny Montigny, among others, to the sound of accompanying music. You can also find the high-quality images from our image database in the catalogue, promotional video and online channels.
