Exhibition catalogue "Rubens, Van Dyck, Jordaens and the others. Baroque Flemish paintings in the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium" presented at the museum Marmottan Monet, Paris (September 20, 2012 - February 3, 2013).
Among the principal pieces is Rubens’s The Miracles of St. Benedict, an unfinished painting entirely by Rubens’s hand and a fine example of his virtuosity. Also in the exhibition is Jacob Jordaens’s boisterous The King Drinks and his imposing Portrait of a Woman. Anthony van Dyck and the masterpiece Portrait of Father Jean Charles della Faille. Landscapes, genre painting and still life are represented by the painters who did most to ensure their success. Foremost among them are Paul Bril, Lucas van Uden, David Teniers the Younger, Frans De Momper, Jan Fyt and Abraham Brueghel.
The exhibition gives also due importance to painters who are less well known today but who in their time enjoyed great popularity. Cornelis Schut, Gerard de Lairesse, Jacob van Oost the Elder, Jan Siberechts, Gillis van Tilborch and David Ryckaert all belong in this category.
An item of great interest is a canvas by the Brussels born painter Karel Philips Spierinck A bacchanal with two fauns looking at drunken Silenus, with putti cavorting. It is a recent acquisition of the Old Paintings section of the Royal Museums and is one of the first works to show the influence of Nicolas Poussin.
