Andrew Graham-Dixon tours the Low Countries, exploring how history has influenced the area's art, architecture and culture.

In the first edition, he details how the art of Renaissance Flanders evolved from the crafting of precious tapestries, and begins his journey at the altarpiece of Ghent Cathedral, created by the Van Eyck brothers, explaining their groundbreaking innovation in oil painting and marvels at how the colours are still vibrant today.

Plus, he describes how during the era people believed they were preoccupied with the end of the world.
