St Luke Drawing the Virgin and Child

For two years from 26 October 2017, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery will host the mesmerising painting St Luke Drawing the Virgin and Child, on loan from The Bowes Museum.

This masterpiece of Flemish Renaissance art was painted in the workshop of Dieric Bouts the Elder in the mid-15th century. A series of events will celebrate the picture’s arrival in our Old Masters Gallery.
