This exhibition’s Flemish Baroque paintings, comprising significant works by Peter Paul Rubens, Jacob Jordaens and Antonis van Dyck among others, were separated into five categories: the Counter-Reformation’s imagery, mythological and allegorical motifs, portraiture in Antwerp, still life, scenes from everyday life as well as from the city, land and sea. The range of subjects shows the diversity of art of the time and reflects various interests and needs of different groups of spectators at the same time.
