Information from Rubenianum’s website, 20 May 2015
Organized in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Rubens in private’ held at the Rubens House, this symposium aims to contextualize Rubens’s family portraits. The first two speakers will discuss and present research carried out for the exhibition. Two subsequent talks will address the differing character of family portraiture in the Northern and Southern Netherlands. The afternoon session will start with two presentations on the remarkable family portraits painted by Jacob Jordaens. Two final talks will look at the influence of Flemish painting on family portraiture further afield. The day will conclude with a visit to the exhibition in the Rubens House.
