Celebrating Rubens’s 439th birthday today with 'Lot and his Daughters' on view now in London https://t.co/4Yn9SneJRx

‘It feels very special to be in front of this extraordinary painting by Rubens,’ says art critic Alastair Sooke, discussing Lot and his Daughters — a ‘masterpiece’ by the artist that is touring internationally before being offered in Christie’s Old Master and British Paintings Evening Sale in London on 7 July. Remarkable in size, at over two metres across, the painting was influenced by great works Rubens saw on travels through Italy. ‘He transforms those sources into something that’s really spectacular and quite spell binding,’ Sooke explains. ‘Everywhere you look, there’s something to involve the eye — from different hues, to the shadows in its creases and folds.’
