Adri­aen Brouwer Ex­hi­bi­tion 15 Septem­ber to 16 De­cem­ber 2018 Town Hall, Ou­de­naarde

Timeless Travels Magazine - - BELGIUM -

The city of Ou­de­naarde will be host­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion de­voted to the painter Adri­aen Brouwer (1605/06 - 1638). Be­tween the 16th and 18th cen­turies, Ou­de­naarde was one of the most im­por­tant ta­pes­try weav­ing cen­tres in Flan­ders, and Brouwer was born there, the son of a ta­pes­try car­toon painter.

He grew to be the bridg­ing fig­ure be­tween the 16th cen­tury Bruegel­tra­di­tion and the land­scape and genre scenes of the 17th cen­tury. Dur­ing his life­time he was a highly re­garded artist, very fash­ion­able and well col­lected by his con­tem­po­raries, Rubens and Rem­brandt. This ex­hi­bi­tion will pro­vide the vis­i­tor with a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into Brouwer’s oeu­vre, and the fact that to­day he is less well known than his con­tem­po­raries, makes him one of the most in­ter­est­ing pain­ters of the Low Coun­tries. www.mou-ou­de­
