Rubens & Women, a major exhibition of the works of Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) will open soon at Dulwich Picture Gallery (27 September 2023 – 28 January 2024).
Uniting a diverse range of paintings drawn from throughout the artist’s career, the exhibition will be the first to challenge the popular assumption that Rubens painted only one type of woman, providing instead a more nuanced view of the artist who painted more portraits of his wives and children than almost any other, even Rembrandt.
In this lecture, exhibition co-curator Dr Amy Orrock will provide insights into the key themes and works featured in the show, and explore the varied and important place occupied by women, both real and imagined, in Rubens’ world.
