Colloque : “Artistic relations between Antwerp and Genoa, 1550-1650”, Rubenianum, Anvers, 20 septembre 2019
A select number of specialists will present papers on the many connections between the harbour cities, including an active art trade, Genoese patronage of Flemish artists in both Genoa and Antwerp, and cross-pollination between Flemish and Genoese artists, of which the Genoese sojourns of Rubens and Van Dyck are without doubt the best-known examples.
