THE FLEMISH AND DUTCH PAINTING

Part of the Brukenthal Collection of Painting, the Flemish and Dutch collection comprises about 450 works.
Samuel von Brukenthal shared the same particular interest in the art of the Low Countries with the Viennese collectors of his time, for the variety of methods found to expressing reality in painting. Grand and lesser masters trained in famous artistic cetres of Antwerp, Bruges, Gand, Amsterdam, The Hague, Leiden and Utrecht, shown remarkable personality and originality in their work. The easel works in the Brukenthal Collection stand for the artistry of Flemish and Dutch school, evincing the stylistic evolution from the 16th century to the 18th century, with an emphasis on the 17th century, the Golden Period of arts in the Low Countries.
Displaying a great variety of subjects, the Flemish and Dutch painting reveals religious and mythological themes in the works of Marinus van Reymerswaele, Frans Floris van Vriendt, Hendrik van Balen, Frans II Francken, the aristocratic richness in the works of Peter Paul Rubens and Anthon van Dyck, the decorative value in paintings by Frans Snyders, Jan Fyt, Jacob Jordaens, Jan Davidsz de Heem, the intimate genre scene painted by Frans I van Mieris, Jan Gerritsz van Bronkhorst and Hendrick ter Brugghen, the everz day life chronicle told by Joost Cornelisz Droochsloot, Jan Bylert, Harmen Fransz Hals and the diversity shown in the landscapes of Frans Boels, Jodocus de Momper, Andries van Ertvelt.
