Description: Bruxelles: Racine, 2011. 28cm., pbk., 191pp. illus., most in color. French-Dutch text. Exhibition held at Hôtel de ville de Bruxelles. Summary: The magnificence of Baroque painting may get all the attention, but Baroque sculpture has scarcely been honoured in Belgium for many years. And yet, this heritage is within easy access and still revealing its magnificence. That's the main purpose of this exhibition, which will be the starting point of a tour in central Brussels. In fact, our country has had some very great sculptors and we will be (re)discovering them by some original works, but also through terra cottas, drawings, sketches gradually announcing its climax, being the recently restored sumptuous Tours et Taxis chapel in Notre-Dame du Sablon church, exceptionally open during the exhibition. A number of works by major artists will be shown for the first time: Faydherbe, Verbrugghen, Bergé and Kerricx, to name just a few.
