Museum Mayer Van Den Bergh, Antwerp

Belgium 2000
Tel: 32 3232 4237's insider take:

This glorious hodgepodge of paintings, decorative arts, and fine crafts (heavy on Dutch and Flemish pieces from the 14th to 16th centuries) was amassed by art collector Fritz Mayer van den Bergh over an amazingly brief period (he died in 1901 at the age of 43) and was opened to the public in 1904. Van den Bergh was one of the first to rediscover and popularize the works of Pieter Brueghel the Elder, whose Bosch-like "Mad Meg" hangs here.
