The expo 'From Scribble tot Cartoon. Drawings from Bruegel to Rubens'
From November 17, 2023 through February 18, 2024, the Museum Plantin-Moretus shows the 100 most beautiful old master drawings from Flemish collections. From Scribble to Cartoon: Drawings from Bruegel to Rubens gives an astonishing and representative overview of the art of drawing in our regions in the 16th and 17th centuries.
The exhibition challenges the visitor to look beyond a drawing’s subject and composition to consider how and why it was created and why an artist chose specific materials, techniques, formats and even sizes. It provides a framework to allow visitors to see drawings in the functional context for which they were created. Many works will be exhibited for the very first time.
In conjunction with this current exhibition, the museum organises a Symposium on January 16, 2024. Nine expert on Old Master drawings will present 10 presentations at the Rubenianum in Antwerp. The sumposium will close with a reception at the museum and a visit to the exhibition.
