Peter Paul Rubens and the Flemish 17th Century
Curated by Tom Ruggio and Thomas German
from the Seena and Arnold Davis Collection
Peter Paul Rubens and the Flemish 17th Century” is an exhibition that includes works by the great Rubens, his workshop, art from the century leading up to the master’s epoch and works by artists outside the borders of Flanders. Rubens’s genius did not develop in a vacuum and any attempt to tell the story of Rubens and the Flemish Baroque must look beyond Antwerp into the time and space of Europe from the Renaissance forward.
Comprised of paintings and drawings amassed from a single collection, the intent for selecting these twenty-six works is to tell a fascinating tale centered around Peter Paul Rubens, one of the Baroque era’s brightest stars.
Seena and Arnold Davis’s collection provides the groundwork for a marvelous journey through art history. The Davis’s discerning connoisseurship and passion for collecting that spanned decades, provided the curators an opportunity to create a narrative that introduces the viewer to the Baroque through the selected works.
It is the hope of the curators that the viewer become enlightened and inspired throughout this narrow scope with a broad view concentrating on one of the Baroque period’s greatest of masters, Peter Paul Rubens.
