Missing Stages in Rubens’s Design Process

Individual visitors - Lecture

A lecture by professor emeritus Dr. Arnout Balis (Centrum Rubenianum)
A substantial part of Rubens’s vast creative output are his sketches on paper, in oil, and bozzetti in many forms shaping his artistic ideas. Although large numbers of these preparative works have been preserved – and indeed are among the Rubenses that fascinate present-day audiences most – many must have been lost. In his lecture Arnout Balis will for the first time shed light on what is missing.
The lecture is in Dutch.
