At 152 paintings, the collection of 'Flemish Primitives' held by the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp is the largest in Flanders. This publication gives an overview from 'pre-Eyckian' painting to some of the highpoints of late medieval art from beyond the Low Countries.
Works discussed include altarpieces, secular art, pieces by women religious, Flemish artists elsewhere in Europe, as well as sculpture. Besides the religious views that framed thought, the art of painting is contextualized in a wider perspective on art itself.
