Marinus: Painter from Reymerswale, on display in Room D of the Jerónimos Building from 9 March to 13 June with the sponsorship of Mitsubishi Corporation and the Fundación Amigos del Museo del Prado, is the first monographic exhibition to be organised on this Netherlandish artist who worked in the first half of the 16th century. While many of his paintings are very well known and appreciated today from textbooks on economic history – the Flemish economic historian Raymond de Roover (1904-1972) was one of the first to associate money changers with the profession of banking in the 16th century and to illustrate them in his books – the artist’s life and work have been little studied in recent decades.
The exhibition, which is curated by Christine Seidel, Curator of painting up to 1800 at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart and the recipient of a Fundación María Cristina Masaveu Peterson study grant at the Museo del Prado in 2018, has brought together 10 paintings by this enigmatic artist, three of them – from the Louvre, the Hermitage and the Fine Arts Museum in Ghent – not previously seen in Spain, in addition to books, prints and coins that add context to the images by the artist and reveal his working practice.
From 2018 onwards the five works in the Prado’s collection were restored for the exhibition in the Museum’s restoration studio and are now presented together for the first time.
