Witness A Renaissance Masterpiece Be Restored

Picture of Culture Trip Brussels
Updated: 29 March 2016
Until the end of April, visitors at the Museum of the City of Brussels have the opportunity to observe a unique piece of historical art. The huge 16th-century paper fresco is believed to be made by Flemish painter Pieter Coecke and depicts a part of the biblical Martyrdom of St. Paul. For generations it was used as a template to make woven tapestries, which makes it even more valuable. During the week, visitors are welcome to visit the Museum and watch as an international team of experts refurbish this historic ‘tapestry cartoon.’
