Host Thomas Vanderveken tracks the journey of world-famous paintings by Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Bruegel and Jan Van Eyck. The key question throughout each episode is: "How did this work of art end up where it is now?" Thomas uncovers the mysteries that surround the provenance of these pieces by talking with historians, art fanatics and descendants of former owners. He takes us on a thrilling journey through time, from the battlefields of Napoleon’s Peninsular War to the bunkers of Nazi leaders. We see the walls the paintings have hung on; we learn about the hands that have handled them and the disasters they have survived.
