A forgotten Belgian impressionist, in Ghent:

The MSK organises such interesting exhibitions! I remember reading about their Jan van Eyck exhibition that was to take place back in 2020 (and which eventually only lasted for about a month before lockdowns began) and wishing I'd be able to visit.

Ah, the Van Eyck exhibition. I had tickets ...for the day the exhibition had to close.... >:(

In Den Bosch, and well worth a visit: https://www.hetnoordbrabantsmuseum.nl/en/visit/exhibitions/2022/07/symbolism-in-flanders/

The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp is open again after 11 years of difficult (costs & delays) renovation and revamping.
But the result is very impressive! I was happy to see some old favorites: Rubens' Adoration of the magi, the Fouquet madonna, Ensor's oyster eater, Van Eyck's saint Barbara  and a wealth of known and unkown Flemish artists of the early 20th century - Rik Wouters, Jules Schmalzigaug, Leon Spilliaert...

The architects worked wonders in preserving the atmosphere of a 19th century art-palace in combination with new rooms , fit for the 21st century.

Took the grandkids (4 & 6) to the Natural History Museum in South Kensington yesterday. Even with crowds and filthy weather we had a great time. "Dippy" a Diplodocus was in residence, you do wonder why and how some dinosaurs evolved at such massive sizes. With free entry and popularity a system in place of booking a slot which saves joining a long queue. Pic below I took of a Stegosaurus.   
You must have a very good opinion of yourself to write a symphony - John Ireland.

I opened the door people rushed through and I was left holding the knob - Bo Diddley.
