Art Around the World - Flemish Masters

“Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.” ― René Magritte

In this +With Friends series we travel virtually to Flanders, in modern day Belgium, to learn about the birth and evolution of the Northern Renaissance.

In Week 2, we Zoomed to Brussels on the footsteps of Pieter Bruegel, the enigmatic master who is largely responsible for the creation of Flanders’ national psyche and collective consciousness as “hard working yet bon vivant.” In his paintings of landscapes and picturesque villages bustling with life the boundary between real and fantastic is blurred in his apocalyptic religious and mythical visions. 

Art Works:

Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Landscape with the Fall of Icarus, 1560 

Pieter Bruegel the Elder, The Census of Bethlehem, 1566

In Week 3, we are off to Antwerp, on the River Scheldt, which became the heart of Catholic Flanders after the separation from the seven reformed Northern Provinces, where we meet Pieter Paul Rubens, the greatest Flemish Master of the 17th century. As a court painter and diplomat, he traveled extensively throughout a Europe shaken by the Thirty Years’ War and religious turmoil, expressing the contrasts of the age in his intense religiously charged yet sensual baroque masterpieces. 

Let’s explore!
