From 25 of January to May 25, 2014 – BOZAR – Centre for fine Arts
Francisco de Zurbarán ( 1598 – 1664 ) is a painter of the Spanish Golden Age. Contemporary and friend of Velázquez , Zurbarán is well known for his religious paintings – where his art reveals a great visual strength and a deep mysticism . Initially very influenced by Caravaggio , his austere and sombre style evolves to come closer to the mannerism of the Italian masters.
For the first time, an overview of his artistic work is being presented in Belgium.
