To immerse ourselves in some Flemish art, we went to the Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts. It houses the Musée d'Art Moderne and the Musée d'Art Ancien.I was just amazed at how well-lit this museum was compared to, say, the Prado of Madrid. Spending more than two hours inside was so pleasant. It was a refuge from the bustling city outside. One of my favorites, Robert Campin's Annunciation, was behind thick glass but I was able to touch another favorite, Jacques-Louis David's Marat Assassinated. It also had a separate wing for Pieter Pauwel Ruben's gigantic paintings.
