From 18 June 2016 to 2 October 2016 at the Rockox House.

Clara Peeters was an outsider – one of the few female fine artists in the early seventeenth century, not to mention a pioneer in the development of still life as a genre.

We know very little about her life. She worked in Antwerp in the first quarter of the seventeenth century, and a mere forty paintings have been attributed to her. Her still lifes – banquets, fish platters and bouquets – are a feast for the eye.

The exhibition Clara Peeters. Dinner is served sets out to answer the questions evoked by the sometimes enigmatic work of this fascinating artist.

In collaboration with the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid

From 26 August to 11 December 2016 at Museum Hof van Busleyden in Mechelen.

The Mad Maiden is a well-known work by Rik Wouters, whose roots lie in Mechelen, and symbolises the connection between the visual arts, movement and dance.

On the occasion of the centenary of the death of Wouters in 2016, Museums & Heritage Mechelen and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp will join forces again for this unique exhibition. 

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.
