The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is loaning the masterpiece out especially for the Baroque year. The arrival of the painting is one of the main highlights of the city festival ‘Antwerp Baroque 2018. Rubens inspires’. The writhing composition is one of the masterpieces of the Art Gallery of Ontario. The work is brimming with drama and violence.
