Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has an extremely important collection of oil sketches by Peter Paul Rubens (Siegen 1577 – Antwerp 1640). The collection is unique in the Netherlands and is among the best in the world. Whereas Rubens’ large works were created with an army of assistants, his brilliant oil sketches are entirely his own work. In this exhibition, the museum shows Rubens’ unrivalled imagination: his ability to tell stories with endless variety, in which the viewer is swept away.
The exhibition is a partnership with the Museo Nacional Del Prado in Madrid.
