Description

Peter Paul Rubens was a superstar almost from the beginning of his career. By the time he was in his early 30s he’d already found patronage from the aristocracy of Europe, and in arguably the most fertile period of his career, from 1609 through 1621, Rubens created a body of work that would solidify his place in the canon. The Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco has organized a show with more than 30 paintings and 20 works on paper from that period, including some of his notable large-scale, life-size paintings, which have been loaned from institutions across Europe and the U.S.
