Rubens and his legacy: Van Dyck to Cezanne (Lecture) SOLD OUT

  • Royal Academy of Arts |
  • Lecture |
  • Friday, 20 February 2015 - 10:45 until 12:00

This introductory lecture will be held in the RA’s Fine Rooms. The exhibition brings together masterpieces produced during Ruben’s lifetime and major works by artists influenced by him.  It is a remarkable legacy seen in the prints of Picasso and Rembrandt, the portraiture of Van Dyck, the hunting scenes and devotional works of Delacroix and the landscapes of Constable and Gainsborough. Rubens, known for his fleshy nude women, also embraced an array of subjects, from religious and mythological scenes to landscapes and portraits.  The exhibition looks at each of these areas through six themes; power, lust, compassion, elegance, poetry and violence.

Please note: Entry to the exhibition is not included in this event. Exhibition entrance is free to Friends of the RA or tickets for both the lecture and exhibition may be purchased for £29 by booking the event Rubens and his legacy: van Dyck to Cezanne (Lecture and Exhibition).

This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
