Among Rubens’s many royal commissions was one from King Philip IV of Spain for the decorations for his hunting lodge near Madrid. It involved more than a hundred paintings, sixty of them after Rubens’s own designs. They were ordered in 1636 and completed in 1637. That was only possible because Rubens had a large workshop. But he made the sketches himself. Here are six of them.
How big is the Sketch and wich materials are used?
