CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Rubens and van Dyck

Exhibition: 25 February - 23 May 2010

From the museum website, 14 September 2009

The Nationalmuseum in Stockholm organizes an exhibition around these two giants of Flemish painting. One of the principal works of Van Dyck, his will be shown together with the second version from the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam.

Both paintings were recently restored and in the process essential differences were revealed. Over the last few months extensive research has been carried out to establish which painting was made first and to find out whether both works were painted by Van Dyck himself. Did he paint an original and a replica in his studio, or is one of them a copy by a pupil? The research was done jointly by the staff of both museums.
