Het Steen - now a museum in Antwerp - Belgium

 In his room he bides, arms crossed, quite still before flick of brush or scumble; for the mind's commotions mustn't chill while fingers fumble. Like the harvesters who stack his straw, like the peasants in the wain, like his cowman - I'm more than a little in awe of the Master of Het Steen.
