Rubens and his legacy: Van Dyck to Cezanne (Lecture and Exhibition 12pm slot) SOLD OUT
Lecture | Royal Academy of Arts
Friday 20 February 2015 - 10:45 until 14:30
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: This event includes the lecture and entrance to the exhibition (at the Art Fund rate of £14). Friends of the RA, for whom entry to the exhibition is free, should book onto the event Rubens and his legacy: van Dyck to Cezanne (Lecture) at a cost of only £15.
