Housed in one of Europe’s oldest hospital structures, Bruges’ Hospital Museum is equally as important for its collection of works by painter Hans Memling (1430-1494), a German artist who spent the majority of his career in the Flemish town, as it is for the history of its Hospital of Saint John.

Highlighting the history of both the hospital and the career and work of Memling, The Hospital Museum, Bruges text makes a superb guide to the museum’s collection as it points to the key works and elements within them that set Memling apart from his colleagues and ensured his enduring status as master artist. Packed with illustrations and engaging text, this volume is now available in both digital and print formats at Musebooks.
