Portrait of a Gentleman in a White Collar by Early School of Rubens

Artwork Detail

Ruben's numerous pupils and assistants included Anthony van Dyck, to whom this painting was attributed when it came into the collection in 1940, having made its way to Auckland with others through war-torn seas. Frequent collaboration with other established artists was necessary for Rubens to complete his huge workload. In the 17th century a whole style of French painting came to bear his name (Rubénisme).
