12 Oct - 27 Jan 2013. The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium are staging a major exhibition of Jacob Jordaens and the classical antique sources of his work, to be followed by a second show at the Fridericianum from 2012 until 2013.
Along with Anthony Van Dyke and Peter Paul Rubens, Jordaens (1593-1678) was one of the leading exponents of the Flemish Baroque from the Antwerp school of painting.
The exhibition comprises loans of around 80 paintings and drawings, tapestries and sculpture from the Prado in Madrid, the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, Scotland's Glasgow Museum and Art Gallery, and the Albertina in Vienna.
