Rubens & Women – Dulwich Picture Gallery, UK

27 Sep — 28 Jan 2024

Discover a different side to Rubens and learn how the leading women in his life came to shape the artist we know today.

Rubens & Women, a major exhibition of the Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640), will unite a diverse range of paintings and drawings from throughout the artist’s career. The exhibition will be the first to challenge the popular assumption that the artist painted only one type of woman, providing instead a more nuanced view of the varied and important place occupied by women, both real and imagined, in his world.

Over 40 paintings and drawings along with archive material will reveal the essential ways in which Rubens’s relationships with women nourished his creativity and career – from the role played by his female patrons and family members to his profound faith, artistic beliefs, and great loves. Featuring masterpieces from international and private collections, many of which will be appearing in the UK for the first time, this landmark exhibition will reconsider one of art history’s most influential figures.
