From Van Dyck to Bellotto: Splendor at the Court of Savoy
BRUSSELS  •  Palais des Beaux-arts  •  Ongoing
This show highlights the interest in the Flemish masters shown by the family that gave Italy its first king. See works by Jan "Velvet" Brueghel, Peter Paul Rubens, and Anthony Van Dyck, alongside those of Italian masters from the 15th to the 18th century. The latter include Bernardo Bellotto, heir to the photographic vision of his master, Canaletto, and painter of a splendid View of Turn from the Royal Park. Turin, in turn, will host a selection of important works from the Bruges and Antwerp collections in 2010. Highlights include a room entirely devoted to Caravaggesque painting, two illuminated manuscripts from the Royal Library of Belgium and a group of Brussels tapestries, never previously shown in Belgium.
