Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) is considered the most successful painter of the Baroque period. Even during his lifetime, collectors were prepared to pay top prices for his works. But how did the young artist become a painter who was celebrated throughout Europe? The catalogue shows how, in the early years of his career, Rubens laid the foundations for his later success.
Drawing was an essential element of Warhol's everyday life during his early years in New York. He was particularly inspired by the blossoming magazine culture and its pictorial language. He drew a large number of subjects from the world-famous LIFE magazine. This publication presents the drawings in direct juxtaposition with the sources that he used.
