The City Museum of Brussels has an extraordinary work of art: a huge drawing of 3m40 to 3m80 of the Martyrdom of St. Paul (16th century).

This gigantic fresco paper is a reflection of the life and concerns of an era in motion: the Renaissance. It is attributed to the Flemish painter Pieter Coecke. Now, the tapestry carton undergoes a thorough restoration in the museum. The public will be able to follow this restoration in the museum.
