Jordaens and the Antique, Royal Museums of Fine Arts, Brussels, Belgium

After the successful exhibition Rubens: A Genius at Work (14.09.2007-28.01.2008), the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels are planning a major exhibition on Jordaens and the Antique from October 12 2012 until January 27 2013. A second venue is planned from March 1 until June 16 2013 at the Fridericianum (Museumslandschaft Hessen Kassel), site of the world-famous Documenta. Loans of around 80 paintings and drawings, tapestries and sculpture from major museums and little-known private collections from Spain (Prado), Denmark (Statens Museum for Kunst), the United Kingdom (Glasgow Museum and Art Gallery) and Austria (Albertina), supplemented with key works from Brussels and Kassel, will offer the public lesser known yet unexpectedly engaging episodes from classical antique sources – from Ovid’s Metamorphoses to Diogenes Laertius’s Lives and Opinions of Famous Philosophers.
