Rubens HUMA3

The Museo del Prado and the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum are  presenting the exhibition Rubens. Painter of Sketches. Sponsored by Fundación AXA and with the collaboration of the Government of  Flanders, it offers an analysis of Rubens as the most important painter of oil sketches in the history of European art.

Of the nearly 500 oil sketches executed by Rubens over the course of his career, this exhibition includes 73 loaned from leading institutions world-wide, including the Louvre, the Hermitage, the National Gallery  and the Metropolitan Museum, and also from the collections of the Prado and the Boijmans (which have two of the largest holdings of this type).

On display for four months in Room C of the Jerónimos Building, the sketches are shown alongside a number of prints, drawings and paintings by Rubens which provide a context for them, bringing the total number of works on display to 93.

Following its showing at the Prado, Rubens. Painter of Sketches will travel to the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in September.
