Rubens Metamorphoses

Peter Paul Rubens (1577‒1640) achieved great fame during his own lifetime and is regarded to this day as the foremost Flemish painter of the Baroque period. The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna has around forty paintings by the master and his workshop. They include intensely vibrant key works teeming with figures, such as the huge altarpieces for the  Jesuit Church in Antwerp, and more intimate depictions, including the »Portrait of Hélène Fourment (Het Pelsken)«, the »Head of Medusa«, and Rubens’s late self-portrait.

In autumn 2017 the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna is dedicating a magnificent exhibition to this key exponent of European painting. Together with numerous international loans, Rubens’s oeuvre will be combined in a spectacular showcase. Its focal point will be the painter’s creativity. Rubens excelled more than any other at using the works of other artists for his own creative output. He engaged throughout his life in this dialogue with the works of his illustrious predecessors and contemporaries, a dialogue that was to shape his oeuvre over a period of fifty years. As a painter he was continually transforming his own compositions. And, indeed, Rubens’s works often owe their dynamic and compelling contemporary appearance precisely to his penchant for reworking.
