Two portrayals of the proverb ‘As the old sing, so pipe the young’ will grace the walls of the Mauritshuis this summer. Jan Steen’s large canvas from the museum’s collection will be joined by a painting by Jacob Jordaens, on loan from the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp. This will be a wonderful opportunity to compare these two humorous paintings and discern how two different artists tackled the same subject. Find out more about the ‘Steen & Jordaens’ exhibition from the Mauritshuis’ website.
