Jan Brueghel I (1568-1625)

In 2019 Flanders and Brussels are looking back at the crucial role that Pieter Brueghel the Elder played in the art-historical landscape of the sixteenth century. The 450th anniversary of his death is a good moment at which to rediscover the work of Jan Brueghel the Elder.

An all-rounder

The Snyders&Rockox House is taking a closer look at the drawings of Jan Brueghel I (1568-1625), son of Pieter Brueghel the Elder and brother of Pieter the Younger. Together with Peter Paul Rubens, Jan was one of the most succesful Flemish artists of the first quarter of the seventeenth century. He was an all-rounder - an inspired painter of landscapes, seascapes, still lifes, hunting scenes... Jan is seen as the inventor of the floral still, but he was also an important innovator in the depiction of landscapes, in which his farther's artistic legacy and his visit to Italy played no small part.

Art of drawing

The art of painting is underpinned with that of drawing, by which the artist's talent and creativity can be measured. No previous exhibition has been dedicated solely to the drawn oeuvre of Jan Brueghel I. The exhibition will feature some fifty drawings and several paintings.

Antwerp à la carte

The exhibition “Antwerp à la carte” presents the history of the City of Antwerp through culinary glasses. It does not focus on political events, economic theories or artistic trends. Instead it focuses on the vital challenge of how cities feed an ever-growing group of city-dwellers throughout the centuries.
