The Flemish primitives
During Bruges’ Golden Age, the 15th century, the fine arts prevailed. In the wake of the prestigious Burgundian dynasty, the great Flemish Primitives made a name for themselves. The world-renowned works of Jan Van Eyck, Hans Memling and those of other prominent Flemish Masters can be admired at the Groeninge Museum, Museum St John’s Hospital, St Saviour’s Cathedral and the Church of Our Lady. Michelangelo’s world famous ‘Madonna and Child’ can also be found in the Church of Our Lady.
