The Darling of the Russian Nobility: Jacob Jordaens’ exhibition is going to Moscow (17.09-30.11)

The exhibition is going to include 15 large paintings and about 20 drawings, including some from the reserves of Nizhniy Novgorod and Perm Art Museums.

Jacob Jordaens was born in 1593. Together with Peter Rubens, he was learning art from the famous Adam van Noort. The representatives of Charles I of England, Queen Henrietta Maria of France and the House of Orange-Nassau were among his customers.
Toward the end of the 18th century, Jordaens’ paintings started coming to Russia. First, Catherine II was buying them for the Hermitage she founded in 1764, then other Russian nobles started collecting works of the Flemish Golden Age painters.
Jacob Jordaens did not limit himself to this or that genre. He created religious, mythological or historical scenes, made portraits and still nature paintings, being especially fond of genre compositions with burlesque elements. His works are overflowing with baroque life, dramatic  scenes and close-ups.
