Pure Rubens oil sketch experience

“The exhibition ‘Pure Rubens’ is the largest overview of Rubens’ oil sketches in sixty-five years. Each of the oil sketches displays the brilliant touch of the master himself. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is proud owner of an important collection of Rubens’ oil sketches. The collection is unique in The Netherlands and among the finest of the world. ‘Pure Rubens’ reveals the painter’s unmatched imaginative powers: his ability to tell stories in ways so original and exciting that you will be swept away. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid have collaborated to bring together the most beautiful works that show the master’s hand in all its facets and reveal his temperament: ambitious, spirited and plentiful.”
