Finally I got the chance to visit the charactiristic monastry in Patershol. During history the monastry and the monks were of great signaficance in the cityquarter of the poor. I visited the exhibition "Oer" in which the Flemish roots are shown through the paintings and statues of Flemish artists. The exhibitions was spacious and light and it was a joy to see so many beautiful artwork together. The free audiotour made you experience the art even better and helped me explore the signaficances of every painting even more. In the museum you can learn about the restauration of van Eyks famous Lamb of God, which is shown in the Sint Baafs Cathedral. Unfortunately you can not visit the original monastry and church and the famous waterwell. But it is a great idea to take visit the museum when you are in the beautiful city of Gent.

In this periode they have the exibition Oer. A very nice one on the history of Flanders with paintings of their famous artists in Expressionism and Impressionism. Very good organised with an excellent audio system. No way to miss this when in Gent.

I came to learn more about the restoration. The exhibit was very informative and worth a slight detour from the historic center. My only criticism is that the exhibition featured one short film after another and offered NO WHERE to sit while watching. Prepare to stand for 1.5 hours if you want to watch them all and read all the didactics. After touring the city by foot all day, it was a bit much.

The nineteenth century sees Belgium become one of the leading industrial nations in the world. Farmers become factory workers, deserting the countryside for the city to live in cramped and stinking slums beneath towering mill chimneys that belch smoke day and night. The growing nostalgia for a lost pastoral age causes artists like Emile Claus, Gustave Van de Woestyne, George Minne and Valerius De Saedeleer to abandon the stench of Ghent and breathe the purer air of the Leie area where they create their art and develop new styles. This exhibition shows a wonderful overview of their work and evolution in a great setting in the old Caermers convent. A MUST if you are in Ghent between now and August 2017.
