This video forms an introduction to the exhibition Pure Rubens. Curator Friso Lammertse tells us about the life and work of Peter Paul Rubens.


In Pure Rubens the most beautiful oil sketches of Rubens have been brought together. With this, the exhibition gives a unique insight into the working method and virtuosity of this ‘god of the painters’. It is precisely in his sketches that we see the skilled hand of the master himself. Pure Rubens brings this world famous artist closer than ever.


Pure Rubens is on view from 8 September 2018 to 13 January 2019 in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
