Jordaens often painted the same subjects. But by his special use of colour each painting of this great and undervalued colorist is unique. There is an increasing number of enthusiasts who know how to appreciate his work.

Leo Jordaens was undoubtedly extremely talented and much more can be said about his work than just being beautiful. With a minimum of tools - a palette knife, oil paint and panel - he managed to create beautiful compositions, which were based on existing scenes, but in the end still only vaguely recognisable. Recognising a work by Jordaens, on the other hand, is child's play. No one paints like him, although rumour still has it that father Jordaens painted in much the same style and that the works are hardly distinguishable.
Apart from the typical technique and the recurring scenes, there are still a number of other characteristics peculiar to Leo Jordaens. Invariably, he painted on a base of thin pressed wood, Had he painted on canvas, his work today would be worth a multiplicity. He always used very thin wooden frames that were usually made of natural wood or white in colour.
