An overview of the exhibitions currently on view in or in collaboration with the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp.

Campagnebeeld The Sky is the limit

The Sky is the Limit. Landscape in the Low Countries

From 25 March 2017 until 2 July 2017 at the Rockox House Museum.

In the 16th century a new genre of painting arose: the landscape. Artists initially painted landscapes as backdrops for biblical or mythological scenes. Gradually, they developed infinite variations on the theme, with cityscapes, mountain views, panoramas, depictions of hell and seascapes becoming subjects in their own right. This exhibition includes works by Joachim Patinir, Pieter Bruegel I en Peter Paul Rubens. Travel by video artist David Claerbout will be featured as a contemporary counterpart.

A collaboration with the Rockox House and the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister Dresden.

Campagnebeeld Retrospectieve Rik Wouters

For the first time, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Antwerp bring together in one exhibition the most important collection of works by the illustrious Belgian artist of the early 20thcentury. A prominent figure in Brabant’s Fauvism, Rik Wouters brought us brilliant and colorful art.

Portret Jan Van Beers

The Van Beers Affair. Master painter or conman?

From 19 March 2016 to 25 June 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.
