Theodoor van Loon was one of the first painters from the Southern Netherlands to be deeply influenced by the art of Caravaggio.

For the very first time this exhibition brings you into contact with the work of this atypical artist while exploring, through books, drawings, engravings and paintings, the historical context into which he breathed new life.
