Rubens. Portraits of princes

Published at 02 August 2017
Rubens was, in all likelihood a little reluctantly, a prolific court portraitist. With portraits of Philippe IV, Louis XIII and Marie de’ Medici and other royal figures by the artist and some of his famous contemporaries (Pourbus, Champaigne, Velázquez, Van Dyck, etc.), the exhibition introduces visitors to the stately environment of 17th century Europe’s most illustrious courts. Exhibition organised by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais Curatorship: Dominique Jacquot, Director of the Strasbourg Musée des Beaux-Arts Exhibit design: Véronique Dollfus
