From 13 October 2012 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) presents the exhibition The Road to Van Eyck with more than eighty masterpieces by Dutch, Flemish, French and German artists around 1400.
Extremely valuable and fragile paintings, sculptures and drawings by Europe’s most important artists of the period, including Jan van Eyck, Jean Maelwael and the Master of Saint Veronica, are coming to Rotterdam from collections in the United States and Europe. Because of the fragility of the works, this is the first and probably the last time that an exhibition on this subject will be held. The Road to Van Eyck reveals who inspired Jan van Eyck to create his revolutionary, realistic style.
The core of the exhibition is made up of panel paintings. The remainder of the exhibition comprises a small but world-class selection of sculptures, decorative works in gold and silver, illuminated manuscripts and drawings. The exhibits include small sculptures by Jacques de Baerze and Claus de Werve from the tomb of Philip the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, and an important selection of works by Van Eyck such as Saint Barbara from Antwerp, the Annunciation from Washington and the restored The Three Marys at the Tomb from the collector of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
Dates: from October 13 to February 10.
Location: Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Museumpark 18 3015 CX Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Opening hours: from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 5pm.
