An exhibition in association with The Phoebus Foundation

From 3 October 2020

Rembrandt, Vermeer and Frans Hals are the artistic heroes of the Northern Netherlands. The Southern Netherlands has its own Big Three: Rubens, Van Dyck and Jordaens. Jacob Jordaens is the least known and least studied member of this illustrious trio from the age of Baroque. His life and working methods show striking similarities to those of Frans Hals.

As sons of Flemish cloth merchants, they were both productive well into old age. Neither worked as court painters; their clients were mainly the moneyed elite in their home towns.

Jordaens’ work, like Hals’, is characterized by great panache and ‘earthiness’, individuality and idiosyncrasy. As well as portraits, Jordaens also produced historical paintings and genre scenes. Many of the works in the exhibition are on loan from a private collection and have never been seen together before. A not-to-be-missed opportunity!
