      Exhibition: Rubens. Painter of Sketches

      The Prado Museum partners with the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam to present an exhibition focusing on oil sketches by Rubens, attesting to his important role in establishing this technique.

      Preliminary studies in oils were first used by such artists as Caravaggio, Tintoretto, and Veronese in the 16th century, but the Flemish painter Rubens is considered to be their greatest exponent. While there are around a dozen extant oil sketches by earlier artists, around 450 can be firmly attributed to him. This exhibition celebrates Rubens’ contribution to European art history with around 70 sketches, plus around 20 finished paintings, drawings, and other works to provide context.
