‘Rubens: A Master in the Making’, the Gallery’s much-anticipated autumn exhibition, is now open.

It explores the flowering of Rubens’s genius and examines his transformation from awkward apprentice painter to a virtuoso artist with an international reputation.

Advance booking is recommended for this exhibition.

Wednesday evenings are the perfect time to visit this exhibition when there will be talks, free live music from the world of Rubens and a bar in the Sainsbury Wing Foyer.

There is also a chance to win a trip to Antwerp, home of Rubens, courtesy of Tourism Flanders.
