CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Arte Flamenco del siglo XVII. Colleción del Museo Real de Bellas Artes de Amberes

Exhibition: 1 March - 27 May 2012

From 1 March onwards the Museo Nacional de Arte (MUNAL) in Mexico City is staging the exhibition Arte Flamenco del siglo XVII. The package that KMSKA compiled for this show contains over fifty paintings from its collection of old art, including work by Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony Van Dyck, Jan Brueghel the Elder and Jacob Jordaens. Arte Flamenco illustrates the essential characteristics of seventeenth-century Flemish painting in six thematic clusters: religious art, landscape and still-life painting, portraiture, scenes from daily life, allegory and mythology, and the Guild of St Luke. The exhibition also considers the profound influence of Flemish art on the emerging arts scene of New Spain. Arte Flamenco del siglo XVII is organised in collaboration with Bozar in Brussels as part of a programme to promote the cultural heritage of Flanders around the world.
