In Autumn 2017, see an incredible exhibition of this leading figure of European painting at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna. Together with countless international loans, the show promises a spectacular show of Ruben's oeuvre.
The central theme is the painter's creativity. Rubens and his works are second to none, both on their own and for the painter's use of other artists' works. His dialog with predecessors and contemporaries occupied Rubens his entire life and informed his works for over 50 years. He was always changing his own compositions and giving them new meaning. Rubens’s works often owe their dynamic, compelling and modern appearance to his penchant for reworking.
