      In his day, the Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) was the
      most renowned artist working in northern Europe. Based in Antwerp, but
      also working for long periods in London, Paris, and Madrid, Rubens
      produced an astounding volume and array of monumental paintings and
      ambitious commissions for patrons across the continent.

      In the first U.S. exhibition to present a comprehensive survey of
      Rubens's oil sketches, the Berkeley Art Museum (working with the Bruce
      Museum of Arts and Science and the Cincinnati Art Museum) brings
      together 30 works by the 17th-century master painter. These small,
      engaging studies — made in preparation for large altarpieces, ceiling
      paintings, tapestries, and engravings, among other public and private
      commissions — reveal a rare perspective on Rubens's skill, passion,
      and ambition as a painter.

      "Drawn by the Brush: Oil Sketches by Peter Paul Rubens" is accompanied
      by an in-depth exhibition website with an online exhibition, essays
      from the exhibition catalog, and a timeline of Rubens's life and work;
      as well as a schedule of public programs in which distinguished
      scholars and artists will explore the continuing relevance of Rubens's
      themes. The BAM admission price will rise from $8 to $10 during the
      run of the show. Admission remains free for BAM/PFA members and UC
      Berkeley students, faculty, and staff.
