Description - Rubens by Gilles Neret

There are over 1,000 catalogued works by Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640), the 16th-century flag bearer for Baroque drama, movement, and sensuality. This essential introduction takes in the most important works from this astonishingly prolific oeuvre to explore Rubens's influences and innovations, and his remarkable visual, and art historical, impact.
The richly illustrated survey takes in Rubens's portraits, landscapes, and historical paintings, as well as his famed and bountiful nudes. Along the way, we examine the artist's astonishing technique and his deft ability to depict narrative in a compelling and legible visual form, whether an erotic mythological scene or a tender biblical story. This remarkable artistic bravura is placed in context both within Rubens's long art historical legacy through Van Dyck, Velazquez, and beyond, and his other talents as a classical scholar, diplomat, and knight.
