However, recent scholarly and scientific study of those forgotten masters has greatly advance our knowledge of them. Today, not only do we have a better insight into the work of Pourbus and Blondeel, we can also introduce you to their artistic descendants with the oeuvres of several generations of the Claeissens family and of Marcus Gerards.

They were all renowned masters producing works of the utmost quality that secured their high status in the art market. This book provides a necessary update of Bruges art history and place many long-held assumptions in a new light.
