A series of audio/video artworks called “Ichographs: vanLoon” based on van Loon’s paintings will be presented at BOZAR, as a parallel exhibition to the main exhibition “Theodoor van Loon, a Caravaggist painter between Rome and Brussels”
Theodoor van Loon was one of the first painters from the Southern Netherlands to be deeply influenced by the art of Caravaggio. Like his contemporary Rubens, Van Loon developed a powerful, original style and throughout the whole of his career he remains marked by the Italian masters.
For the very first time this exhibition brings you into contact with the work of this atypical artist. By placing his paintings alongside those of his contemporaries (Rubens, Barocci, Bloemaert) the show reveals the particular role Van Loon played in his era.
