Peter Paul Rubens: Painter, Spy, Scholar or Comedian?

Peter Paul Rubens, the most celebrated artist of the 17th century, was caught between intrigue and art during the Thirty Years War, Europe’s most destructive war until the 20th century. This presentation will examine how Rubens used his art, networks and diplomatic skill to navigate different spheres of identity.

Find out more about the artist in this talk by art historian Timothy Revell as part of this year’s Ways of Seeing programme on identities in art and architecture.
