At home with the Bible
08.02- 10.10. 2014
The exhibition shows how stories from the Bible are an integral part of the art and culture of the Low Countries. Artists like Jan Steen, Pieter Brueghel and Ferdinand Bol were masters at using their own familiar surroundings as the settings for biblical scenes. Well-known stories are not being re-enacted in warm climates but in recognisable villages and cities.
