Date: 20 September 2019
Venue: RUBENIANUM | Kolveniersstraat 20, 2000 Antwerp, Belgium
Antwerp and Genoa share a similar history as important trade centres in the early modern period. The Rubenianum is pleased to announce a symposium on September 20th about the artistic connections between Antwerp and Genoa in the late 16th and early 17th centuries.
A select number of specialists will present papers on the many connections between the harbour cities, including an active art trade, Genoese patronage of Flemish artists in both Genoa and Antwerp, and cross-pollination between Flemish and Genoese artists, of which the Genoese sojourns of Rubens and Van Dyck are without doubt the best-known examples.
