The second presentation
Certain seldom-shown works of art from the Collection will be spotlighted for a short time.
The painting by Gustave Courbet has now been replaced by a far older one, namely the small panel painting St. Christopher by Pieter Huys, painted around 1560.
Panel paintings by this Antwerp master, a follower of Hieronymus Bosch, fascinate us with a wealth of strange figures and fantasy elements rounding out the classic depiction of the legend of St. Christopher, who carried the Christ Child. For all its religious edification, the portrayal makes a contribution to the viewer's visual enjoyment as well as reflecting the depths of feeling and fears in an endangered world.
Exhibition duration: February 2, 2107 ─ April 23, 2017
