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.

 
 

The new museum is due to open its doors in 2019.

 

Get caught up in the design, meet the builders and take a look at the museum site through the lens of our photographer. While the building is undergoing a spectacular renovation, the museum team is busy plotting a brand new course. The aim of the new museum will be to amaze and enrich its visitors, and to connect them with everything it does.

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.
