The Master’s Soul: Antwerp drawings from Rubens to Panamarenko

Dries Van Noten has been selected along with ten guest curators (Adriaan Raemdonck, illustrator-cartoonist Benoît and illustrator Kaatje Vermeire, among others) to participate in The Master’s Soul: Antwerp drawings from Rubens to Panamarenko exhibition taking place from 15th September to the 16th December at Antwerps Plantin Moretus Museum.  

From over 20,000 drawings from the Print Room of the museum, each curator made a selection of old masters and contemporary work to be displayed. The exhibition brings together a mix of exceptional drawings and sketches by old masters and contemporary talent from 1500 to today.

Drawings are very sensitive to light, which is why they are rarely exhibited. The Master’s Soul is therefore a unique opportunity to admire the hidden collection of the museum’s Print Room. 

Exhibition highlights include works by Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck, Jacob Jordaens, Jan Brueghel, Eugeen Van Mieghem, the Linnig family, Floris Jespers, Panamarenko, Jan Fabre and Sam Dillemans.
