Brukenthal Collection, one of the most prestigious in Central
Europe, was assembled during the XVIII century by Baron Samuel
von Brukenthal. This exhibition brings together the masterpieces by the
greatest masters of the Flemish school, including Van Eyck, Bruegel,
Memling or Jordaens.
The beginning of
the exhibition is devoted to
masters of the Flemish school, their works forming the richest and most
prestigious part of the Brukenthal Collection. In the
mid-XVIII century, Flemish art was very popular with art
collectors in Europe, particularly in Vienna, and Samuel von Brukenthal was able to
assemble a remarkable
range of Flemish art from the XV to the XVII centuries.
This exhibition is the first time in its history that the Brukenthal
national museum is loaning 50 of it's most famous works of art.

(This cafe is called "one of the most beautiful in Paris" personally I
think this is an exaggeration but it is a lovely spot for afternoon tea
or coffee. I found lunch a little expensive and not that
great but the deserts were excellent!)
