The masterpiece is on display in the VG&M, as part of reciprocol loan arrangement with Civic Museum of Vicenza
A masterpiece by seventeenth century Flemish painter Anthony Van Dyck has gone on display in the Victoria Gallery & Museum’s (VG&M) first floor art gallery.
`The four ages of man’ was painted during a long stay in Italy by the painter who was trained by the master Flemish baroque artist, Peter Paul Rubens. The subject of the painting is not known for certain but perhaps it is linking human ages, seasons and mythology: Cupid as Spring and infancy, Venus as Summer and youth, Mars as Autumn and middle age, and Saturn as Winter and old age.
The painting is part of a reciprocal loan arrangement with the exhibition organiser Linea d’ombra on behalf of the Civic Museum of Vicenza.
The VG&M is lending ‘The Eruption of Soufrií¨re St Vincent’ by JMW Turner to the `Around Monet’ exhibition at the Palazzo della Gran Guardia in Verona and then moving to Basilica Palladiana, Vicenza.
National Museums Liverpool is also lending two paintings from the Walker Art Gallery to the same exhibition including a Turner which is hanging on the same wall.
`The four ages of Man’ will be on display in Gallery 4 in the VG&M until May 2014.
