Cross-fertilization in European culture on show in Brussels

"The city of Brussels is to host the largest showcase of European art that the continent has seen, an exhibition that aims to prove how 'joined up' its artistic heritage really is", we are informed by art critics Rachel Shields and Arifa Akbar regarding an exhibition at the BOZAR Centre For Fine Arts. "The Grand Atelier: Pathways of Art in Europe from the 5th to the 18th Centuries brings together 350 masterpieces from 150 museums for the first time in the biggest collaborative exhibition in the history of Europe. The show aims to trace the artistic cross-fertilisation in European culture from the end of the Roman Empire until the French Revolution, and it is staged to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome which led to the formation of the European Union."
