While some museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are currently open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
Marinus van Reymerswale is best known for his genre scenes of bankers and tax collectors, which offer a satirical view of the powerful financial classes in Antwerp (where he spent the early part of his career) and the Netherlands in the 16th century. His large workshop also produced a number of panels depicting religious subjects, in particular The Calling of Saint Matthew, and Saint Jerome in his Study. This exhibition at the Museo del Prado, which holds the largest collection of works by the painter, is the first monographic survey of his work; it runs from 9 March–13 June.
