From Floris to Rubens Master drawings from a Belgian private collection

Focus exhibition

>

Unknown assistant of Pieter Coecke van Aelst, Man’s head, Cardboard fragment for ‘Homecoming of Pompey and Cornelia’ of the tapestry ‘History of Julius Caesar’, 452 x 350 mm. Private collection

This exhibition features ninety drawings from artists from the southern and northern Netherlands created during the 16th and beginning of the 17th century. Assembled with great care by the collector, these drawings belong to one of the most fascinating and prolific periods in the history of draughtsmanship. 

In addition to beautiful sketches for prints, paintings, stained glass and tapestries by great masters such as Frans Floris and Peter Paul Rubens, other sheets like the sublime figure studies of Hendrick Goltzius and Cornelis De Vos or the so accurately detailed landscapes of Pieter Stevens and Adriaen Frans Boudewijns are put in the spotlights. The majority of the selected drawings have never been shown to the public before.
