Gaspar de Crayer. Rinaldo and Armida


The Epiarte Collection comprises more than 200 works of art belonging to the Flemish and the Dutch schools from the 16th and 17th centuries, although Italian, French and Spanish paintings from the same period can also be found in this collection. Some of the highlighted authors of these paintings are Pieter Coecke van Aelst, Hendrick van Balen, Peter Paul Rubens, Jacob Jordaens, Gaspar de Crayer, Frans Francken II, Erasmus Quellinus, David Teniers II, Victor Wolfvoet, Willem van Herp and Joris van Son.

The quality of this collection and its importance within the catalogue of Flemish and Dutch painters stimulate National and International Museums to request them for exhibitions, a practice which has been becoming more frequent during the last years.

The Research Department of the Instituto Moll is in charge of documenting, preserving, studing and spreading these paintings from the Modern Age. This information is made public not only through papers and monographs focused on specialists in this field but through general texts which help the less knowledgeable readers to understand this Artistic Heritage so representative of the identity of Spain and its territories during the above mentioned centuries and so determining to the evolution of the Spanish Art.
