Wij: Van zalig tot zot
Katharina Van Cauteren
The Phoebus Foundation & Hannibal, 2020
We – From Blissful to Crazy is a unique rollercoaster ride through three centuries of art and cultural history. One hundred breathtaking masterpieces from the collection of The Phoebus Foundation, by Hans Memling, Quinten Metsys, Peter Paul Rubens and Antoon Van Dyck, among others, take the reader through a world full of folly and sin, fascination and ambition. They tell about rich citizens and poor saints, about artists and wine cellars, and about Antwerp as Hollywood on the Scheldt.
This book is a compelling story about the image and its meaning, and about the link between culture and society. Because above all, this is about us and who we are today – as humans.
Publication accompanying the major exhibition From Memling to Rubens – The Golden Age of Flanders at the Kadriorg Art Museum in Tallinn, Estonia, and at the MAS in Antwerp. IN DUTCH!
