Drama and Tenderness

MNHA, Luxembourg
10 November 2017 - 1 October 2019

The KMSKA organizes together with the Musée National d'Histoire et d'Art in Luxembourg the exhibition Drama and Tenderness - Flemish, Spanish and Italian Art of the Baroque. This fine-tasting show brings together thirty works by Rubens, Van Dyck and Jordaens with Murillo, Ribalta and Zurbarán. The artworks come from both museum collections and from three prestigious private collections. The exhibition shows the exchange between Flemish, Italian and Spanish baroque masters. Many locally celebrated art gods were less base than you might think. Painters elsewhere produced ideas and sometimes sought an international career, such as Antwerp's Rubens and Van Dyck. In Rome Flemish artists discovered the amazing work of Caravaggio, to introduce his style with sharp contrasts in the North. From the Naples of Ribera the painting of the darkness blew over to Spain. There, Velázquez, Ribalta and Zurbarán brought the stylistic device to an unprecedented level. In the second half of the 17th century, Spanish artists looked at the bright and colorful palette and poetry of Rubens.
