May 2018: 425 years since the birth of Jacob Jordaens
Flemish painter Jacob Jordaens (Antwerp 19 May 1593 – 18 October 1678) was a prominent artistic figure of the Baroque era.

Amongst his most famous paintings are mythological and allegorical scenes and portraits.

Greatly influenced by Rubens, his work shows a greater realism and a fascinating use of chiaroscuro.
