Lucas van Leyden, The Flag Bearer, c. 1510, engraving. Rotterdam, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, exhib.cat. 32

10 October 2015 – 17 January 2016 | Rotterdam, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

The exhibition Uncovering Everyday Life – From Bosch to Bruegel brings together ‘politically incorrect’ paintings and prints of the highest standard: forty sixteenth-century paintings, including Bosch’s ‘Haywain’ from the Prado (Madrid) and Pieter Bruegel’s equally well-known ‘The Peasant and the Nest Robber’ from the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Vienna), and the same number of prints, including wonderful engravings and etchings by – among others – Lucas van Leyden, Hans Bol,  Jan Vermeyen and Pieter Bruegel.  This is the first ever exhibition devoted to sixteenth-century genre scenes, a radical departure from the traditions of religious art and portraiture. The exhibition is curated by Friso Lammertse and Peter van der Coelen (who is also a member of the editorial board of Delineavit et Sculpsit). They are the editors and main authors of the exhibition catalogue, which is published in a Dutch edition only.
