In the framework of the « Flemish masters in situ » action by Openbaar Kunstbezit Vlaanderen by the cathedral exhibits the Crucifixion altarpiece by Michiel Coxcie
Influential 16th-century artist from Mechelen Michiel Coxcie learned his trade in Italy, soon saw himself compared to the great Raphael and was duly appointed court painter to Philip II of Spain. Apart from an altarpiece and a triptych with representations of Christ carrying the cross and His descent from the cross, Coxcie painted this Crucifixion with a doubtlessly Italian feel to be hung in the cathedral, where he was also responsible for finishing the stained glass windows.
