Events Description

A master storyteller whose larger-than-life paintings illustrate scenes from mythology, history and the Bible, the dramatic flair of Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) comes to the AGO this fall. Famous at a young age, the exhibition explores Rubens’s virtuosic artworks, the evolution of his studio, his innovative adoption of early copyright law and Antwerp’s own violent history. Featuring over 30 large-scale paintings – including several never before shown in North America – and more than 20 works on paper, Early Rubens opens in Toronto on Oct. 12, 2019.
