Dutch paintings of the Golden Age are provided from the collection of Valeria and Konstantin Mauergauz, one of the largest private collections in Russia with art monuments of the XVI–XVII centuries.
At the exhibition, the Brueghels' paintings are complemented with a number of works by their contemporaries-well-known Flemish and Dutch artists. In total, the exhibition presents 70 paintings, most of which are shown to the public in Russia for the first time.
The collection of Flemish paintings of the 17th century is represented in the collection of Valeria and Constantin Mauergauz in many ways as a continuation of the Brueghels art tradition, which prevailed in Antwerp until the 18th century. The genres that stemmed from it, namely landscape, still life, and portrait, have given rise to whole schools and directions, which will be presented at the exhibition as examples of famous artists' works.
