Patinir exhibition / by delphine queme

I would like to talk today about one of my favorite painters.
He is not known, he is not considered as a “master” of the 15/16th century, but he is known for his landscapes painting. His name is Joachim Patinir.
To my big surprise, the Museo del Prado in Madrid, Spain, has organised an extraordinary exhibition, certainly because it is the museum in the world to have most paintings from him. Among the 29 paintings, there were 2 paintings i did not know (from personal collections) and 2 paintings which i knew (from books) but that have completely overwhelmed me. The most beautiful is shown hereunder. It is absolutely stupid from me to show it to you because to see it for real is a totally different experience. Actually I THINK this is the most beautiful thing i have ever seen EVER in my entire life.
You will notice in the landscapes of Patinir some rocky almost unreal mountains.
It was a tribute to Patinir for me to name one of the track of my last EP “Rocky Landscape”.
