After six exhibitions devoted to masters of the XIX and XX centuries, Villa Olmo has decided to focus on the art of the XVII century for the first time, and specifically on an absolute master of light and colour, such as Pieter Paul Rubens, who, with the amazing seduction power emanated by his visions, nurtured the extraordinary experience of the golden age of Flemish Baroque. This exhibition lets you get in touch with Rubens’s painting typical themes, such as sacred subjects and references to history and myths, through 25 masterpieces loaned by the most important museums in the world.
