  • Cities of Belgium A Travel Guide of Art and History A Comprehensive Guide to the Belgian Cathedrals Churches and Art Galleries Bruges Ghent Br
Product Description:
The Renaissance and Baroque architecture, artwork and religious buildings of Belgium are treasures to behold, rich in significance and beauty.

Tragically, many travel guides simply brush over these beautiful creations as mere items to check off a list during sightseeing in cities which together constitute the rich, centuries old essence of Flemish culture.

By contrast, Belgian Cities - A Travel Guide of Art and History is designed for tourists who wish to achieve an in-depth understanding during perusals of the wondrous achievements in painting, sculpture and architectural design pioneered and proliferated in the Belgian cities. Rich yet accessible descriptions of the most significant works, guidance through the hidden gems, old town districts and standout attractions abound. As a result, the curious reader is spurred to understanding of a culture whose history and art can so often be overwhelming or mysterious to the visitor.

This book is designed as a cultural companion to a more general city and tour guide, to be read as you wander amidst the many breathtaking works of art and ancient designs that the cities of Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp and the capital Brussels contain. The many cathedrals, churches and art galleries are a fine highlight of the Belgian nation, with the period art and architecture dating between 1300 and 1700 a particular focus within this book.

In reading this guide composed by lecturer of art and heritage architecture Maxime Jensens, you will imbue your journey with comprehension and enlightenment.

Concluding your journey to Belgium, you will not simply carry happy memories of having seen and enjoyed the gorgeous culture, cuisine and fine hospitality - but a vivid, intense understanding of how significant and inseparable the country's art and architecture are from its very fabric and core of Belgian identity.

  • Antwerp A Travel Guide of Art and History A Comprehensive Guide to the Cathedral Churches and Art of Antwerp Belgium
Product Description:
The Medieval and Baroque architecture, artwork and religious buildings of Antwerp are treasures to behold - rich in significance, beauty and depth.

Tragically, many travel guides simply brush over the beautifully creative structures and artworks as mere items to check off a list during sightseeing in Antwerp, which has become a fine gem in the pantheon of Flemish culture.

By contrast, Antwerp - A Travel Guide of Art and History is designed for tourists wanting to achieve an in-depth understanding during their perusals of the wondrous achievements in painting, sculpture and design pioneered and proliferated within Antwerp. Rich yet accessible descriptions of the most significant works from the Dutch and Flemish pantheons of art offer guidance through the hidden gems and old town districts, spurring the reader to sublime comprehension.

This book is designed as a companion to a more general city guide, to be read as you tour and take in the many breathtaking works of art and ancient architectural design that confer majesty to the fashionably cosmopolitan city of Antwerp. The Cathedral of our Lady is richly described, with the Grote Markt and its surrounding districts receiving due consideration. Details of the Baroque and Renaissance era buildings, their purpose and their influence are described, bringing to life what might otherwise be incomprehensible, or merely baubles in a general tour.

In reading this book - part of a series on Belgian cities composed by lecturer of art and heritage architecture Maxime Jensens - you will imbue your journey with enlightenment and knowledge.

When you finish your journey to Antwerp, you will not simply carry happy memories of having seen and enjoyed the gorgeous culture, cuisine and fine hospitality - but a vivid, intense understanding of how significant and inseparable this city's art and architecture are from its nature and essential verve.
