There's the rub. A Rubens show without many good Rubens. Though first in show goes to Rubens' seventeen studies of dancing peasants

But the rest is a sort of group show loosely tied round some mediocre Rubensss. Notwithstanding that it's actually most enjoyable, a great Fragonard drawing here, a lovely Watteau there, even a Cezanne to liven things up. And in one room bravely Jenny Savile has found some modern stuff to show her stuffy drawing with.
