The Mayer van den Bergh museum in Antwerp
This aptly titled museum holds the personal art collection of Fritz Mayer van den Bergh, a man with an excellent taste and a predilection for Gothic and Renaissance period pieces from the Low Country region. In 1878, Fritz prematurely broke off his studies in letters, philosophy, and law at the University of Ghent. In that year, his father also died. He went back to his mother's home and schooled himself as an antiquarian, which entirely suited his passion: the collection of art from home and abroad.
