In the early 1620s Peter Paul Rubens designed a series of monumental tapestries, The Triumph of the Eucharist, for the governor-general of the Netherlands, the Infanta Isabel Clara Eugenia. This exhibition reunites several of Rubens’s exuberant preparatory oil sketches for this commission with four of the corresponding tapestries from the Madrid church for which they were made. Vivid and dynamic, the Eucharist series reveals the enormous powers of invention of a brilliant artist who helped define the Baroque.

Spectacular Rubens: The Triumph of the Eucharist runs until January 11, 2015.
