The Parrot. t' Cierlijk schoon van haare veren*

From 8 November 2014 until 22 February 2015

As part of The Golden Cabinet season, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA) and the Rockox House Museum are organising a number of small-scale exhibitions. The Parrot is the third such exhibition in the series. Following the stunning restoration of the painting The Holy family with parrot by Rubens (KMSKA), a work that has been given pride of place in The Golden Cabinet exhibition, we are turning our attention to the parrot in the pictorial art of the 16th and 17th centuries.
