Portraits de Frans Hals : une réunion de famille

Frans Hals Portraits: A Family Reunion Exhibition: 8 June - 25 August 2019

Organized by the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) and the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels, Frans Hals Portraits: A Family Reunion was prompted by TMA’s acquisition in 2011 of Frans Hals’s Van Campen Family Portrait in a Landscape, as well as the recent conservation of Brussels’ Three Children of the Van Campen Family. These two works originally formed one composition, separated for unknown reasons likely in the late 18th century or early 19th century. The exhibition reunites the sections of the Toledo/Brussels painting and a third fragment from a European private collection, where they will be shown with the three other family portraits painted by the artist and includes loans from the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, the National Gallery in London, the Cincinnati Art Museum, and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
