UK Chapter: Private View of Exceptional Rubens Painting and Exclusive Gala Reception @ Christie's

Category: Alumni Events

Dear Vlerick Alumnus,

On July 7th, Christie’s will be selling an exceptional work by Rubens. It is the most important Rubens painting to come to auction since 2002. It has been in a private collection for more than a century and the existence of it was only known from black and white photos until now.  

The painting will be on view at Christie’s in London for one week starting on the 2nd. Since it is such an iconic painting, and this might well be your one and only chance to see it in real life, we thought this could be an excellent occasion for a Vlerick Alumni Reunion.

Vlerick Alumni, in association with the General Representation of the Government of Flanders, KU Leuven Alumni and Liedekerke will be hosting a fantastic event at Christie’s on July 6th. There will be a lecture followed by a champagne reception.

We would be delighted if you could be there. Places are limited so please do confirm your attendance by June 29th.

Please note:
Registration is obligatory before June 29th 2016 via svanwelden@christies.com .
Your registration is only confirmed when you receive a confirmation email.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Sarah Vanwelden
Chapter Liaison Officer
