A must see if you visit Bruges. Several centuries of art ranging from Van Eyck to Expressionism. Well laid out with plenty of places to stop, sit and take in some amazing works of art.

A proper gem of a gallery this one. Essentially dedicated to Bruges/Flemish artists, this takes you through a 700-ish year old tour of art from the area - from Hieronymous Bosch through to the 20th Century. It's all very carefully laid out in chronological order...More

A well-thought-out, well designed art museum. Just the right size. Wonderful Flemish masters, information available in English. Audio guide would have been helpful.

If you like fine arts, this is the place to be. A real gem on a rainy morning in Bruges. There is a very good bookshop in the corner. Order a local guide for a tour in the musea.

I believe you are referring to The Madonna with Canon van der Paele by Jan Van Eyck. Although it's the madonna seated on the throne, not a man.
