The Golden Cabinet

  

Until 2 July 2017 at the Rockox House Museum.

Visitors to the Rockox House in Antwerp will be able to see how an Antwerp art collection must have appeared in the Golden Century. More particularly, the residence of burgomaster and patron  Nicolaas Rockox (1560–1640) is being transformed into a luxurious art cabinet with top items from the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp(closed for renovation) and the most important works from the Rockox House itself. On display will be a range of fine paintings by such masters as  Rogier Van der WeydenHans MemlingJan Van EyckPeter Paul Rubens and  Antoon Van Dyck.

 
Portrait of Van Beers

  

From 19 March 2016 to 5 March 2017 at the Municipal Museum of Lier.

Though Jan Van Beers (1852-1927) has gone down in history as a painter, during his lifetime this artist from Lier was best known as an ambitious society figure.

He first made a name for himself with his history paintings, but he became a highly talented portrait painter of the Parisian beau monde. Realistic details characterize his work, which sometimes looks photographic, even to the extent that Van Beers was suspected of copying photographs and also of painting over them. Van Beers took his adversaries to court and had his work examined by experts. The outcome was inconclusive.

Master painter of conman? 

The Van Beers Affair. Master painter or conman? presents a selection of Jan Van Beers’ eclectic oeuvre and sheds light on the artist's turbulent life.

  

Flat-cum-studio
 

Visit the artist Jozef Peeters' flat-cum-studio.

Jozef Peeters (1895-1960) was one of the first abstract artists in Belgium. He lived in a four-room corner flat on De Gerlachekaai in Antwerp with his wife and two children. Although the façade of the building was given a contemporary revamp in the 1990s, in Peeters' studio flat it is as if time has stood still. Which is fortunate, because in the 1920 he turned it into an impressive three-dimensional painting.
