PRESENTATION GALLERY : Galerie Lowet de Wotrenge
Galerie Lowet de Wotrenge was founded over twenty years ago in Antwerp by Anne Baudouin and Robert Lowet de Wotrenge. In 2009, their son Tyr joined the business, and in 2012, the gallery relocated to its new premises in the heart of Antwerp’s historic centre. Although the gallery can be visited by appointment only, it hosts several exhibitions annually that are open to the public, in addition to a number of lectures and private events. It also participates in several art fairs, such as Munich Highlights, Paris Tableau and Pan Amsterdam.
The gallery deals not only in old-master paintings, but also in works on paper and sculptures. As far as paintings and drawings are concerned, the focus is mostly, but not exclusively, on Dutch and Flemish works from the 16th to the 18th century. With regard to sculptures, the gallery has a particular interest in Flemish works in terracotta and marble, and has already made several important discoveries in this field.
Over the years, Galerie Lowet de Wotrenge has sold many important works to museums, including the Rijksmuseum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museo di Capodimonte and the Royal Museum of Fine Art of Antwerp. In addition, it has loaned artworks to prestigious exhibitions across Europe. From time to time, the gallery publishes catalogues and newsletters on its new acquisitions, which frequently include rediscovered works by the likes of Rachel Ruysch, Paul Bril or Jan Brueghel.
By appointment only.
