Every Picture Tells a Story – Ongoing Series 6.7.2019
My daughter and I spent this beautiful June morning visiting the “Early Rubens” Exhibit at the Legion of Honor located on a cliff with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean and the Marin Headlands.
I took the photo below of the Marin Headlands while soaking in the view from the Legion of Honor. My other photos are a representative sampling of Peter Paul Ruben’s early work. I was enthralled while studying Ruben’s realistic and gritty Head of Medusa shown above.
“Early Rubens” is impressive and well curated. Each piece of art is exquisitely described along with historical overviews for many of the paintings. This exhibit is educational and artistically impressive.
Massacre of the Innocents (circa 1610)
The Raising of the Cross (ca. 1638)
The Boar Hunt (circa 1615-1617)
