Missing Stages in Rubens’s Design Process

Individual visitors - Lecture

A lecture by Em. Prof. Dr. Arnout Balis (Centrum Rubenianum) on 24 March 2019
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 shed light on what is missing in Rubens oeuvre.

The lecture was held in Dutch.

With the support of the Baillet Latour Fund.
