Antwerp, a city imprinted with the greatest delights of the Baroque art movement, celebrates its identity with a brand new festival 

Jesuits, Rubens & the art of persuasion in the 17th century

An exceptional exhibition presented at the Snijders&Rockoxhuis museum until 16th July 2023 sets out to show how the protagonists of the 17th century thought, dreamt, worked & prayed.  One such protagonists was Peter Paul Rubens who, as co-architect and painter, has contributed to realise one of the Netherlands' most important monuments, the church of Saint-Charles Borromeo. 

The Mougins Museum is particularly honoured to lend to this exhibition a drawing by the Flemish master, Head of a Sphinx, (MMoCA94MA - details on the attached photograph) which was used as a model for the caryatids on either side of the façade.
