8 Nov 2008-1 Feb 2009. This exhibition displays five works by the famous Flemish Baroque painter Jacob Jordaens (1593-1678). Recent research and the restoration of the canvas The Tribute Money. Peter Finding the Silver Coin in the Mouth of a Fish also called The Ferry Boat, painted in Antwerp in 1623, has thrown new light on the artist and his work methods. Jordaens painted altarpieces, mythological, and allegorical scenes and was mainly influenced by northern Italian painters such as Jacopo Bassano, Paolo Veronese and Caravaggio although, unlike his contemporaries, Jordaens never travelled to Italy to study Italian painting. On display are also some works by his contemporaries Peter Paul Rubens and Frans Snijders.
