Rubens Paintings

Rubens reproduction artworksPeter Paul Rubens (1577-1640)

Born: June 28, 1577; Siegen, Germany
Died: May 30, 1640; Antwerp, Belgium
Nationality: Flemish
Art Movement: Baroque

Peter Paul Rubens was the possessor of phenomenal gifts, together with the physical energy and organizational ability to exercise them.  As well as being an exponent of the lush Baroque style that he had acquired in Italy (Caravaggio was a key influence, whose work Rubens continue to champion across Northern Europe), he was Roman Catholic, multilingual, and appointed ambassador for the Hapsburg rulers of the Spanish Netherlands.  His status as Court painter exempted Rubens from paying taxes and it also freed him from guild rules; he could deploy, without restrictions, the huge studio staff needed to carry out all his commissions, many of whom had their own specialties.

More About Rubens...

Rubens' art is a fusion of Flemish realism and the Classic Italian Renaissance.

Most of his earlier works have disappeared or remain unidentified. Rubens' earliest dated work was The Portrait of a Young Man (1597). It was 1598 when he joined the painters' guild in Antwerp.

In Venice, Rubens was influenced by the expressiveness of Renaissance masterpieces of Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese. Later on, he went to Mantua as he was hired by Vincenzo I Gonzaga, who was the duke of Mantua. He was primarily tasked to make copies of Renaissance paintings, most of which are portraits of court beauties.

Back in Antwerp, he was knighted by Philip IV in 1631. Rubens was the only painter so honoured by the kings of England and Spain.
