The Flemish painter, Clara Peeters (Antwerp, Belgium, 1594 - 1657), specialised in still-lifes and one of the few female artists active in Europe during the first half of the 17th century, is featured in an exhibition in which a selection of her best works can be enjoyed.
Following its showing at the Rockoxhuis Museum in Antwerp, this exhibition is coming to Madrid, organised by the Royal Fine Arts Museum of Antwerp, which includes the four works belonging to the Prado. It will be the first time that an exhibition devoted solely to a woman will be held at the Madrid gallery. It aims to highlight the achievements of this delicate artist, whose works usually show breakfast and floral scenes in which precious metal or ceramic objects are interspersed with flowers, fruit and pieces of fish or game creating a multi-colour combination.
In both the exhibition and the accompanying materials, the focus will be placed on the situation of female artists at the beginning of the Modern Europe.
