Fiche détaillée de "Allegories of fertilities in Brussels and London"

Among the three most renowned Flemish Baroque painters - Rubens, Van Dyck, Joardens - Jacques Joardens is undoubtedly the least studied, and therefore the least understood.
He is often reduced to the role of talented genre painter, author of homely scenes like The King Drinks and As the Old Sing, So the Young Pipe. Yet the image of Joardens as a poor man's Rubens - however beloved - obscures the better part of his extensive and varied oeuvre.
This book elucidates the more erudite side of Joardens' production by zeroing in on a single theme, the Allegory of Fertility, principal versions of which are held in the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels and the Wallace Collection in London, respectively.
