Rubens Revealed La furia del penello ran from 13 February 2010 until 4 April 2010.
During the third edition of Rubens Revealed the visitor was taken on a fascinating journey of discovery through the museum's Rubens collection. The exhibition presented the technical research findings of the Rubens research project in an accessible manner. Text and close-up photographs elucidated the main pictorial aspects of each of the canvasses and panels, offering the visitor a unique opportunity to explore every detail of Rubens' furia del pennello or fury of the brush.
Published under the title Rubens doorgelicht. Meekijken over de schouder van een virtuoos (Rubens Revealed.
