Went specifically to see the Hieronymus Bosch triptich and was not disappointed. A lot smaller than you would think but amazing detail. Other great works are on show

Fascinating insight into the early painters of the region. I had not previously been aware of the area's artistic heritage. Most interesting were the under-drawings of several paintings which have been revealed through infra-red light inspection. This work has been going on at the museum...More

The temporary exhibition of Peter Pourbus and his contempory painters is reall an hidden gem. The school of Peter Pourbus can compete with the Flemish Primitives of acentury earlier.

Groeningenmuseum is situated in a lovely location of Bruges, just next to Arentshof park. It nicely surprised me, that the ticket is valid also for Arentshuis Museum and it costs only 6 Euro. The museum mostly has paintings from Flemish painters somehow connected with Brugge....More

I believe you are referring to The Madonna with Canon van der Paele by Jan Van Eyck. Although it's the madonna seated on the throne, not a man.
