VIEW ARTWORK

The European Old Master Painting Collection at the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery is one of the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in the United States. This exhibition of more than 60 works of art from the 14th through the 19th centuries reflects the dramatic course of religious artistic and cultural history in Western Europe during these formative centuries. While the collection’s greatest strength is Italian Baroque painting major artists working in Holland Flanders France and Germany are represented by large-scale works of exceptional quality. Highlights include masterpieces by Botticelli Rubens Tintoretto Veronese Cranach Murillo Ribera van Dyck and Doré. The exhibition will give visitors a deeper understanding of the mainstream developments in European painting over the course of almost five centuries. Additionally the exhibition will focus on guiding visitors through the fascinating narrative subjects of these works and their rich symbolism some of which are now obscure and mysterious.
