From 25 September 2014 until 4 January 2015 in Bozar Brussels

 

Sensation and Sensuality is an exhibition by the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, BOZAR Brussels and the Royal Academy of Arts in London that explores the artistic legacy of Peter Paul Rubens. Over the centuries, Rubens has been admired and even envied for his great sense of colour and composition as well as his painterly technique. His work has been a rich source of inspiration to many a talented artist.

This exhibition explores the artistic legacy of Peter Paul Rubens in six thematic chapters: violence, power, lust, compassion, elegance and poetry. In each of these chapters, curator Nico Van Hout sets out in search of connections between Rubens and a variety of subsequent artists.

From 27 April 2014 until 19 March 2015 at the Municipal Museum of Lier.

 

An exhibition project centred on the universal visual idiom of Pieter Bruegel, his direct followers, and contemporary artists as chroniclers of their ages.

High Horizon. Bruegel Land, Early 21st Century is conceived as a dynamic event incorporating performances, screenings and lectures throughout the year.

The work of such present-day artists as Philip Aguirre y Otegui, Kati Heck, Rinus Van de Velde and Ria Pacquée reactivates and contemporises the historical scenes of Bruegel and his artistic heirs.

From 8 November 2014 to 22 February 2015 at the Rockox House Museum.  

 

As part of The Golden Cabinet, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp and the Rockox House Museum are organising a number of small-scale exhibitions. The Parrot is the third such exhibition in the series. Following the stunning restoration of the painting The Holy family with parrot by Rubens (KMSKA), a work that has been given pride of place in The Golden Cabinet exhibition, we are turning our attention to the parrot in the pictorial art of the 16th and 17th centuries.

Its magnificent plumage was a feast for the eye and a source of inspiration for countless artists. Beauty, wisdom, virginal, exotic and lover are just a few of the many predicates assigned to this bird. Besides Rubens’ work, interpretations of the parrot by Savery, Fijt, Jordaens, de Heem, Dürer, Schongauer and other artists will also be on display.
