sketches from Alte Pinakothek, Munich
Last Thursday I attended as a graphic recorder, a workshop for Siemens, which took place in the Freising near Munich. The day after I had time to take the train to Munich, so I could manage to see the world's largest collection of Peter Paul Rubens at the Alte Pinakothek before I had to go home by plane.
Besides an impressive collection of his works, there are also some pictures of Frans Hals, Hieronimus Bosch, Fredrich Dürer and many other great paintings in the old assembly.
To me Rubens is the origin of Superhero comics. When I look at his paintings it's like looking at an epic battle from a page in a Marvel Comic Book.
