Jacob Vrel. In the footsteps of the mysterious artist

Exhibition October 13, 2020 − January 10, 2021
His paintings seem strange, his characters are moody, and street scenes look like a theatrical performance. The works of Jacob Wrel were often confused with the works of Vermeer. Its street scenes and interiors are part of the collections of the most famous museums in the world, and are also a welcome rarity among collectors. But Jacob Vrel is still almost unknown - despite extensive archival research since its discovery in the 19th century, it has still not been possible to find any information about his personality or place of work.

The works of Jacob Vrehl reproduce the daily life of small towns of the 17th century in Holland and at the same time create mysterious worlds.

Exhibition "Jacob Vrel. In the footsteps of the mysterious artist"contains about 50 paintings and paper works of Vrel.
