The Brueghel family - the Masterpieces of Flemish painting
The Royal Palace, Wroclaw City Museum, 23 July - 30 September. The exhibition is open every day 10:00 - 20:00
The Exhibition shows over 100 paintings by the Brueghels, made during 200 years of work of the famous artistic family. Here we can find “The Ressurection of Christ” by the founder of the family Pieter Brueghel the Elder, the work of Pieter Brueghel the Younger including “Seven Acts of Mercy”, his brother’s - Jan the Elder, including works painted along with Paul Pieter Rubens. We can also admire the paintings of his son Jan the Younger and their most talented descendants all the way to the last prominent representative of the family Abraham Brueghel. All the paintings play an important role in the history of European painting in 16th, 17th and early 18th century. Brueghel’s painting inspired many of the later artists. The masters approached everyday life as well as spiritual life with great attention. Their paintings, full of customs, landscapes and scenes of ordinary people lives, are up until today a very important source of information about their times.
The exhibition “The Brueghel family. The Masterpieces of Flemish painting” was created based on the concept of Joseph Guttmann, the director of Global Art Exhibitions, Inc. The exhibition, being a part of international initiative, in Poland is organised by The City Gallery in Wroclaw, Art for Public association from Prague and the Foundation of City Gallery in Wroclaw.
