JORDAENS The Pride of Antwerp at Petit Palais

September, 19, 2013

Petit palais JordaensOf the three greats of 17th-century Flemish painting – Rubens, Van Dyck and Jordaens – Jordaens is perhaps the least known in France, having never had a major retrospective in this country. Now, the Petit Palais and Agenda are taking on the challenge: the Pride of Antwerp is set to be the major event of the upcoming Paris exhibition season.

Backed up by superb scenography and numerous loans of remarkable works from leading French and International museums, this retrospective will restore Jacob Jordaens (1593-1678) to his rightful place as the pride of Antwerp.
