Guided tour: »Peter Paul Rubens. The Power of Transformation«

Rubens, Ecce homo, 1612 St. Petersburg, Eremitage

with art historian Daniel Uchtmann

Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) is still regarded as the most important Flemish Baroque painter. The exhibition gives an overview of his oeuvre, with works ranging from drawings to large canvases. Rubens was second to none in terms of using other artists for one’s own creative process. This is why the show also includes sculptures from classical antiquity and the Renaissance as well as art from masters like Titian or Tintoretto, who inspired Rubens to develop his radically new imagery. Particularly his large-sized paintings, many of which were displayed in public, proved to be powerful media of the Baroque period.
