From 8 March to 06 October 2019, the Sint-Janshospitaal will form the decor for a selection of remarkable Spanish art from the 17th century. In the monumental hospital wards, some 20 works of religious sculpture and painting, full of Spanish passion, will be on display. It is a rare opportunity to become acquainted with some less well-known aspects of Spain's Golden Century. The highlight of the exhibition, in addition to paintings by famous Spanish masters like Murillo and Zurbaran, is a group of no fewer than seven hyper-realistic sculptures by the greatest sculptor of the Spanish Baroque, Pedro De Mena. These outstanding exhibits, all belonging to private collections in Europe, will be on show in Bruges thanks to an international collaboration project with the Luxemburg Musée National d'Histoire et d'Art.
