A star of the European painting scene in his own time: Godefridus Schalcken (1643 – 1706). Few artists have matched his ability to capture such magical moments in candle- or daylight on canvas so powerfully that they still compel attention three centuries later. Through 24 January, 2016, Wallraf Richartz Museum presents its large special exhibition 'Schalcken – Painted Seduction' inviting to a reassessment of this Baroque painter.
