Five centuries of innovation in Flanders: from Flemish masters to nanotechnologies

Oct 2, 2018 - Boston

On the occasion of the Mission of the Flemish Council for Innovation and Entrepreneurship to Boston, the Government of Flanders organized an exclusive networking reception to celebrate the donaton of a major collection of Dutch and Flemish Art to the Museum of Fine Arts, and the creation of the Center for Netherlandish Art.

The donation by Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo and Susan and Matthew Weatherbie  constitutes the largest gift of European paintings in MFA history.

Flemish and Dutch Art of the 17th century are masterpieces that are the result of 3 centuries of innovation in art and technologies. At the time, the Low Countries were truly world leaders in innovation, a role that has re-emerged in the the 21st century in our region in biotechnologies, medical advances and nanotechnologies, making it once again the pioneers in innovation.
