“Love & Lust” at Centraal Museum

The Centraal Museum in Utrecht currently houses the first monographic exhibition of the work of Golden Age Dutch painter Joachim Wtewael. Centered around the theme “Love & Lust,” the exhibition shows Wtewaels exploration of these themes in his choice of subject (he painted the adultery of Mars and Venus at least four times), his vibrant color scheme, and his explicit representation of nudity considered so daring at the time that his work was often censored or hidden. This exhibition is a collaboration with the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.
