On the morning of Friday, September 13, 2013, Her Majesty Queen Mathilde of Belgium arrived at the Musée du Louvre-Lens in northern France to view the temporary exhibition, L’Europe de Rubens: 170 Oeuvres de l’Artiste, de ses Modèles et de sees Contemporains.
According to the official website for the Musée du Louvre-Lens the exhibition:
“…contains paintings, drawings, sculptures and objets d’art. The aim is to reconstruct the dynamism of Rubens’ creation and convey the spectacular nature of his inspiration. It also offers some intimate moments, revealing Rubens’ more personal side.
L’Europe de Rubens is organized into six themes: the Europe of Courts, Religious Emotion and Baroque Faith, Ephemeral Monumentality, Rubens, Emulation and Competition, Ruben and the Republic of Letters, and the Paths of Genius.”
L’Europe de Rubens: 170 Oeuvres de l’Artiste, de ses Modèles et de ses Contemporains will be open to the public until September 23, 2013. For more information about the exhibition and the Musée du Louvre-Lens please click here.
