Frans Hals Portraits: A Family Reunion
Published on 12.10.2018
The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium and the Toledo Museum of Arts present the exhibition "Frans Hals Portraits: A Family Reunion", wich opens in Toledo on 13 October.
Frans Hals (1582/83–1666) is one of the foremost portrait painters of the Dutch Golden Age, but he only painted four family group portraits.
This exhibition unites these family portraits—including one that is now in sections—along with related works by the artist and his contemporaries and examines the topic of Hals’s family portraiture as a whole, placing it in the context of his complete oeuvre.
The exhibition opens on 13 October at the Toledo Museum of Arts. On 2 February 2019 the exhibition will travel to the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.
