Description: Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) is one of the most celebrated painters of the 17th century. His paintings overflow with an exuberance and joy in life as he turned his eye to almost every subject during his career. As court painter, he created portraits, mythologies and massive schemes for palaces, as well as creating religious paintings for churches and convents. His domestic paintings – often made for his own enjoyment – include remarkable depictions of his family and the countryside he loved around Antwerp.

The Wallace Collection displays fine examples of all these subjects. Over three weeks, we’ll look at them within the wider context of 17th century art and history, exploring their original meanings and marvelling at the technical brilliance of this outstanding painter.
