This Phoebus Focus highlights an artwork with the depiction of Phoebus Apollo by the baroque master Jan Boeckhorst. Phoebus is the sun god after whom The Phoebus Foundation is named. He is the protector of the muses and thus of the arts. He is also a symbol of light and the sun and is intensely connected with the ‘golden age’: a mythical era full of endless abundance and justice.
In the Phoebus Focus series, experts and scientists discuss masterpieces from the rich collection of The Phoebus Foundation.
