Petrus Christus : Secret History Of Art Podcast

In this episode of The Secret History of Art, Noah Charney takes you on a guided tour of a tiny painting in Madrid’s Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza entitled “Our Lady of the Dry Tree” by Petrus Christus.  The painting contains a unique set of symbols found nowhere else in the history of art, and involves a secret Renaissance brotherhood whose existence, before the decoding of this painting, was all but unknown.
