AMSTERDAM – The work of three leading Flemish painters is now on display in the Hermitage in Amsterdam.

The exposition _called “Rubens, Van Dijck and Jordaens” and named after the three most famous Flemish painters from the 17th century _was celebrated Tuesday at a lavish opening.

“We expect more visitors to come to this exhibition than came to the previous, due to the fact that Rubens speaks more to the imagination of the people,” said a Hermitage employee.

Over 800 visitors attended the opening, which was officiated by Hermitage director Ernst Veen.

Cathelijne Broers will follow in his footsteps in November.

Most of the paintings in the Hermitage’s exhibition come from its sister museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The Impressionism exhibition will run from Sept. 17, 2011 until March. 16, 2012.
