The World's Greatest Masterpieces - Rubens

Massacre of the Innocents (1611)


The Virgin and Child Adored by Angels


Peter Paul Rubens

Peter Paul Rubens (June 28, 1577- May 30, 1640) was a prolific seventeenth-century Flemish Baroque painter and a proponent of an exuberant Baroque style that emphasized movement, color, and sensuality. He is well-known for his Counter Reformation altar pieces, portraits, and landscapes, and history paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects. In addition to running a large studio in Antwerp which produced paintings popular with nobility and art collectors throughout Europe, Rubens was a classically educated humanist scholar, art collector and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV, king of Spain, and Charles I, king of England. Rubens died from gout on May 30, 1640 at Antwerp, Belgium.

Good idea, Mel.
