The Master Tour: your connecting thread from place to place

Kruisafneming - Peter Paul Rubens in Antwerpen, Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe-kathedraal  (publiek domain)

The places where Flemish Masters can be found are not islands in themselves. On the contrary, a wonderful connecting thread hangs between numerous destinations. The Golden River, for example, the nickname of the River Lys. Or a sea of mother-of-pearl, as James Ensor once described the North Sea.

On these pages you discover what connections there are between the different places. And the connecting thread will serve as a guide for your fascinating journey, in the footsteps of the Masters.
