Ars Narrandi in Europe's Gothic Age

BOZAR pays tribute to Siena and its magnificent pictorial tradition in collaboration with the prestigious Pinacoteca Nazionale di Siena and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen. Sienese artists developed their own style over time, evolving from the rigid patterns of late-Byzantine iconography to more narrative works of art. The exhibition showcases sixty masterpieces which bear testimony to a revolutionary form of art which, from the thirteenth century until the fifteenth century, took an increasing interest in space and in exploration of human emotions and used brilliant, unusual colours. The Sienese school inspired other arts centres in Italy and finally left its mark all over Europe. A unique opportunity to see these masterpieces in Brussels!
