The exhibition “Under the sign of Rubens. Flemish painting of the XVII century from museums and private collections of Russia” in the State Historical and Art Museum “New Jerusalem” presents 67 iconic works of famous masters of the heyday of Flemish art.
The XVII century is the golden era of Flemish painting, the time of its brilliant, albeit short—lived heyday, the starting impulse of which was the figure of Peter Paul Rubens. Having headed the national art school of the first half of the XVII century, he made it the main phenomenon of the cultural life of Flanders for a long time. The formation of textbook genres, the formation of customer tastes, the active demand for Flemish works and much more took place precisely “under the sign of Rubens”. This bright period of world art history is opened to visitors by an exhibition at the New Jerusalem Museum.
The Voronezh Regional Art Museum has sent three works to the exhibition:
Alexander Adriansen (1587-1661) “Still life with fish”
Tobias Verhacht (1561-1631) “Italian landscape”
Theodore Rombouts (1597-1637) “Portrait of a young man”
The project brought together works from 9 museums, including the Yekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts, the Nizhny Novgorod Art Museum, the Arkhangelsk Estate Museum, the Voronezh Regional Art Museum, the Serpukhov Historical and Art Museum, the Tula Museum of Fine Arts, the Uglich State Historical, Architectural and Art Museum, the Yaroslavl Art Museum and the State Historical and Art Museum “New Jerusalem”, as well as works from private collections.
The exhibition will be available to visitors until May 14, 2023.
