The Wallace Collection’s curator, Lucy Davis, has published a beautiful in-depth examination of Rubens’s iconic pendant landscapes: A View of Het Steen in the Early Morning and The Rainbow Landscape. These very personal, late works have long been recognised for their technical complexity as the artist expanded and revised the compositions multiple times. TSR were happy to be able to contribute new infrared images of The Rainbow Landscape which helped to better understand its complex development casting light on the artist’s intensions and processes.
