About the Show:

The retrospective exhibition Jan Lievens: A Dutch Master Rediscovered at long last attempts to give the artist his due. Lievens, a child prodigy whose career began before that of his fellow Leidener, pupil of Pieter Lastman and competitor/friend Rembrandt, has long been eclipsed in the annals of art history by the latter. While the reasons for this discrepancy are both fairly unclear and clearly unfair, over 110 of the artist's finest works (including 50 paintings, 28 drawings, and 34 prints) presented in this show go a long way towards re-establishing the reputation Lievens enjoyed during his lifetime.
