The Wallace Collection in London are hosting a lecture on Rubens and his Landscape Drawings: Sketching en Plein Air. The talk will be delivered by An Van Camp, the Christopher Brown Curator of Northern European Art at the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology (University of Oxford).

According to the talk's blurb:

Rubens expressed his love and fascination for nature not only through paintings but also a range of superb drawings, which in turn informed his painted oeuvre. In this talk, An van Camp will unravel Rubens as a superb draughtsman of nature by exploring his plein-air sketches, which include delicate landscape compositions as well as sensitive studies of trees and shrubs. By focusing on works kept in British public collections, Rubens will emerge as a great lover of nature. 

The lecture will be broadcast on Zoom on 16th June 2021 at 19.00 (BST) and will cost £4 to attend.
