Open Monumentendag 2019:
Uitgelicht - 15e eeuwse muurschildering in het Oud Huis

To everyone’s surprise, when a wall in the Oud Huis was dismantled during the renovation in the 1990's, not one but two murals were found under the wallpaper. The first and most recent work found was a large 19th-century neo-Renaissance style mural. Underneath this mural an older mural was found. This is a very damaged Calvary group from the 15th century with Christ on the cross, flanked by Mary and the apostle John. The painting was crafted by an unknownmaster and has been violently treated with an axe or chopping knife. Awaiting further renovation, the wall in the Old House, with its various layers of wall paintings and wallpaper, shows the traces of history from the 15th century to the present day. The mural is a complex work of art that in its very own way fits in with the exhibitions in Kunsthal Gent. On Open Monumentendag, the wall is literally illuminated so that the smallest details become visible and you can learn more about the restoration in the 1990s.
