15 October 2015 – 23 January 2016 | Brussels, Royal Library of Belgium

For the first time since it was bought at auction in London last year (see our News item of 16 July 2014) the unique bound print series Emblemata Evangelica by Hans Bol is now on show for a large audience. The rediscovery of this remarkable and intact series – both the prints and the preliminary drawings bound together in an album – is of great significance for the understanding of Bol’s working methods as a draughtsman and print designer and forms an important addition to his oeuvre. The exhibition shows the series in the context of the booming graphic industry in Antwerp in the second half of the sixteenth-century and is accompanied by a catalogue written by curator Joris Van Grieken and his colleague Stefaan Hautekeete of the Royal Museums of Fine Art in Brussels.
