High Art in the low countries: Belgium & the Netherlands
April 7 – 15, 2019
Join the High Museum Director’s Circle members and journey with us from Brussels to Amsterdam to discover masterpieces from Van Eyck to Van Gogh, Magritte, Escher, and beyond. Revel in springtime tulips and daffodils as we spend a week admiring works that can only be viewed in situ and touring iconic museums including the Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels, The Hague’s Mauritshuis, and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. We will also discover unique, lesser known collections at the Horta House Museum in Brussels, the Rockox Museum in Antwerp, and The Hague’s Escher in Het Paleis.
