Have a look at the acquisitions from 2010.
According to legend, Sebastian was an officer of the Praetorian guard in the time of the Roman emperor Diocletian (245-313).
Isabella (1566-1633) and her husband, Archduke Albert, were among Rubens’s most important patrons.
Jacob Jordaens owed his fame as an artist mainly to his history paintings: pictures of mythological and religious subjects were his speciality.
Dogs wreaking havoc in a pantry was a favourite theme of Snijders. He portrayed the animals in the heat of the action: attacking the food with abandon, baring their teeth and growling threateningly at a rival.
