‘Mad about Dymphna’ exhibition

The monumental Dymphna Altarpiece by Goossen van der Weyden is coming to Geel.

The monumental Dymphna altarpiece by Goossen van der Weyden (1505) is coming to Geel thanks to this international exhibition by The Phoebus Foundation.

You will discover the secrets behind the layers of paint and get to know the extraordinary world of van der Weyden.

The Phoebus Foundation subjected the panels to an extensive restoration project lasting more than 3 years. The end result is stunning, as are the discoveries made in the process.

The exhibition tells you about earlier layers, colour differences and van der Weyden’s master hand. Recommended in combination with a visit to ‘Dymphna Depicted’ in the Hospital Museum.

  • Entry: free
  • Guided tour for groups, by reservation, always in combination with ‘Dymphna Depicted’ €3 per person + €50 per guide
