Event description
Guided tour of the exhibition Early Rubens, highlighting works from 1609-1621, at the Art Gallery of Ontario

About this Event

Rubens was born in 1577 and died in 1640. Early Rubens explores one of the most influential artists in Western art history from 1609-1621. The focus is on Ruben’s early work following his return from Italy to Antwerp, Belgium, his home town. This move fuelled his meteoric rise to international acclaim. The exhibition celebrates Rubens at his most exuberant, showing the bold and theatrical style for which he was renowned. The centrepiece of the exhibition is the AGO’s masterpiece Massacre of the Innocents (1611).

Early Rubens is organized by The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and The Art Gallery of Ontario.
