The Secret of the Flemish (El secreto de los flamencos)

Two opposite artistic movements will fight at any cost to play a leading role in the world.

The Renaissance is undoubtedly a time of artistic brightness. While the masters in Florence control the mathematical secret of perspective, the Flemish artistic school focus on the alchemic mysteries of pigments. In spite of that, the world still has no painter owning the total control of both disciplines and, therefore, both doctrines see each other as the major threat.

Pietro della Chiesa, a Florentine disciple of great master Monterga, is found naked and beheaded in the middle of an Italian forest. On the other hand, a young Portuguese lady, as enigmatic as beautiful, hires the Van Mander brothers to paint her a portrait in an impossible amount of time.

Even though Flemish and Florentines approach painting from completely different perspectives, they both are searching for the same thing: the composition of the purest colours, a mystery Aristotle already mentioned centuries before. Everything points to a numeric key hidden in any of Saint Agustine’s texts.

The Renaissance is known for its brightness, but also for its artistic rivalry.
