Sensation and Sensuality: Rubens and his legacy

The BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts examines the legacy of the Flemish Baroque master painter Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640).

A colourful character, Rubens' extravagant work emphasised movement, colour, and sensuality, and he is known for his altarpieces, portraits, landscapes and paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects.

BOZAR focuses on his more sensual style subject matter which exuded lust and violence, compassion and elegance.

Held in collaboration with the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp and the Royal Academy of Arts in London, the exhibition includes works by peers and future artists influenced by Rubens, including Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Watteau, Delacroix, Manet, Kokoschka and Picasso.
