As Europe was rent by war in the 17th century, artists were forced into exile and works plundered. This exhibition at the Residenzschloss, Dresden, presents the results of an international research project fleshing out our knowledge of how artists fared in the turbulent era. Works in display include paintings by the likes of Rubens that communicate the horrors of the conflict; objet d’arts and other precious items that were looted from princely collections; and a selection of weapons and armour from the period. The exhibition runs from 8 July–4 October; find out more from the Dresden State Art Collections website.
