Until March 1st 2020, the Doges’ Palace is holding a fringe exhibition to the Venice Biennale with masterpieces from Flemish collections. Among the exhibits are a silver ensemble designed by Rubens and the terracotta sculpture Apollon et Python by Artus I Quellinus, two masterpieces from the King Baudouin Foundation’s collection.
This summer, don’t miss the double exhibition at Knokke and Retranchement (just up the coast in the Netherlands) dedicated to the abstract art collection offered by Jos Knaepen to the King Baudouin Foundation. Sam Francis, Robert Motherwell and many other great names are to be found alongside the works of two Belgian artists: Luc Peire and Johan De Wit.
Remarkable craftmanship and ambitious entrepreneurship contributed to the development of the art of engraving and printmaking during the century of Breughel. Hans Bol’s series of engravings “Emblemata Evangelica”, acquired by the King Baudouin Foundation, bears witness to this period and are shown at the exhibition “Prints in in the Age of Breughel”.
