Flemish Seventeenth Century Painting

Spranger Bril Teniers
Rubens Crayer Van Dyck
Jordaens Lairesse Momper
Fyt "Velvet" Brueghel

The Age of Rubens heralded a new world in Flemish painting, new perspectives. Rubens, Jordaens, Van Dyck, Teniers, Seghers, Fyt, "Velvet" Brueghel, Savery, and others, drew on the content of the old Netherlandish tradition and used it to elaborate new techniques, a new art of painting. This fresh approach, in which one recognizes all the great themes of the north Netherlands, all the great artistic forebears, reflected the influence of the Italian Renaissance and, later, the vivid realism of Caravaggio. The seventeenth-century Flemish painters were humanists in the vein of Justus Lipsus or Erasmus; theirs was a humanism nourished by antique sources, Mannerist researches, and the realistic light of Caravaggio, giving birth to a veritable Flemish golden age: The Age of Rubens. With this new painting, new genres appeared and others were transformed; the portrait, very much a feature of the Flemish world, reached its apogee with Van Dyck; art that venerated the female body triumphed with Rubens and Jordaens; and the picturesque world of the genre scene developed into a universe full of relish and humanity. The still life became an art in its own right, breaking free of the Vanitas of old to attain heights of refinement charged with mysterious and erudite significance.
