In Origin of pieces Thomas Vanderveken makes a historic road trip in the wake of three world-famous works by the Flemish Masters Pieter Bruegel, Peter Paul Rubens and Jan Van Eyck. The paintings were made in Flanders, but now hang in museums in distant countries. How did they get there? To find out, Thomas travels after them: across Europe and beyond, and straight through history. This is how he reconstructs their fascinating story.
