The exhibition could be visited on 28-29 May during 11:00-18:00. In this week-end, this exhibition presents a work by Lucas van Leyden, Mohammed and the Monk Sergius.     

Lucas van Leyden (1494-1533), known also as Lucas Hugensz or Lucas Jacobsz, was a Dutch painter and engraver. Seventeen paintings of Lucas van Leyden have survived and a number of 27 works are known from descriptions by Karel Van Mander and from copies made according to them.
