Russian Jordaens. Paintings and Drawings by Jacob Jordaens from Russian Collections

October 15 - November 30

Jacob (Jacques) Jordaens (1593-1678) was one of the most prominent painters of the Flemish school alongside Rubens and van Dyck. He worked in almost all genres: he depicted religious, mythological, and historical subjects, and he created portraits and still lifes, giving preference to everyday scenes with burlesque elements.

The title of the exhibition, “Russian Jordaens,” emphasizes the fact that the presentation will bring together works of his that are specifically found in Russian collections. Most of them arrived in Russia as early as the second half of the 18th century and originated from the best European collections of that time, including British (by Robert Walpole), French (by Pierre Crozat), and German (by Ernst Gotzkowsky and Count Heinrich von Brühl). Some of the paintings were bought by Empress Catherine II for the Hermitage Museum founded in 1764.
