Diamonds Are Forever, Says a Jan Brueghel Bouquet
|Jan Brueghel the Elder, A Lavish Still Life with Terracotta Vase, a Clump of Cyclamen, and Scattered Diamonds and Sapphires, 1605-7. Phoebus Foundation, Antwerp|
The Brueghel is a loan from the Phoebus Foundation, which holds an extensive collection of Netherlandish art, Renaissance to contemporary. The Foundation's website says the painting will be on view at the Getty Center through April 14, 2023.
Of late the Getty has an amazing group of Flemish and Dutch loans, now including a magisterial de Heem still life from a private collection and nine Dutch paintings from LACMA's Edward and Hannah Carter collection.
