A Caravaggist Painter between Rome and Brussels
Theodor van Loon (1581/82–1649) was one of the first painters from the Southern Netherlands to have been inspired by the example of Caravaggio. He became one of the most prominent painters of his day, producing important commissions for the court of Archdukes Albert and Isabella, as well as for numerous religious orders in Brussels and its environs. However, his reputation has since waned. This exhibition, co-produced with MNHA Musée National d’Histoire et d’Art Luxembourg, brings together around 50 works, including loans from the Louvre, the Uffizi, and the Kunstmuseum Basel, by van Loon and his contemporaries. Find out more about the Theodoor van Loon exhibition from BOZAR’s website.
