Portret Jan Van Beers

The Van Beers Affair. Master painter or conman?

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. 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.
