Theodoor Rombouts. A virtuoso of Flemish Caravaggism


by Dr. Frederica Van Dam, Curator of Old Masters at the Fine Arts Museum in Ghent

On the occasion of its 225th anniversary, the Fine Arts Museum in Ghent will be organising the very first monographic exhibition devoted to the Flemish Caravaggist painter Theodoor Rombouts (1597-1637). Rombouts was an established figure in the Antwerp artistic community. But although his painting was appreciated during his short life, his artistic heritage was soon forgotten after his death. Curator Dr Frederica Van Dam will shed new light on Rombouts’ artistic personality and discuss the specificities of his work.
