A major exhibition at the Ashmolean showcasing over 100 exceptional Flemish drawings from the 16th and 17th centuries.

From Pieter Bruegel’s remarkable print designs and landscapes and Rubens’s first sketches to heartfelt friendship albums shared between artists, this major exhibition presents drawings from many of the Flemish masters.

These artworks, accompanied by paintings, prints and other objects they inspired, will be brought together for the first time.

They represent some of the most exquisite drawings kept in Antwerp and Oxford collections, created by famous artists such as Pieter Bruegel, Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck and Jacques Jordaens.

Viewers will be invited to inch closer to these often intimate drawings and explore every detail.
