17th-Century Flemish and Dutch Still Lifes. 11 pictures by Osias Beert, Pieter Claesz., Willem Heda, Floris van Dijck, Jan Davidsz de Heem and Clara Peeters.
Continuing with the model of small-format exhibitions such as those held over the past few years on Giandomenico Tiepolo and Giorgio Morandi, this February the Fundación Juan March will be presenting a small exhibition featuring eleven, 17th-century Dutch and Flemish still lifes by Osias Beert, Pieter Claesz., Willem Heda, Floris van Dijck, Jan Davidsz de Heem and Clara Peeters. These were some of the most important artists to make the so-called still-life one of the most characteristic genres within northern European painting.
The exhibition is accompanied by a publication with biographical profiles of the artists and the insightful essay The "table with an arrangement of objects and food-stuffs". A type of Flemish and Dutch still-life painting written by Teresa Posada Kubissa, Curator of Flemish Painting and Northern Schools (to 1700) at the Museo Nacional del Prado.
