Rubens the Intermedial Artist

Wednesday November 13, 2019
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

Join art historian Evonne Levy for a talk that explores how Rubens, like all artists of his time, moved nimbly between media –  his practice as a painter was a highly intermedial practice, moving constantly between media, and involving many difficult to articulate skills in order to do so. This lecture offers a media perspective on the exhibition, including  works in drawing and print, and sketches and full-scale paintings in oil.

Evonne Levy is an eminent expert on the history of art history, and her research areas include Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture writ large. She has worked on the art and biographical legacy of 17th-century Italian sculptor and architect Gian Lorenzo Bernini, the art of the Jesuit order, the runaway religious order of the 16th century, and more recently has started working on the transatlantic Hispanic Baroque.
