Peter Paul Rubens (Siegen 1577 – Antwerp 1640) will be the main protagonist of the great exhibition being held  at Palazzo Reale, Milan until 26.02.2017.

The exhibition emphasizes Rubens’ influence on younger Italian artists, as Pietro da Cortona, Bernini, Lanfranco and Luca Giordano, leading artists of Baroque. It focuses also on the influence exercised on Rubens by ancient art and the XVI century paintings. Furthermore, some of Rubens’ paintings are compared with ancient sculptures, works by great Renaissance painters and other Baroque artists.
