Lives of Rubens, Paperback / softback Book

Lives of Rubens Paperback / softback

Part of the Lives of The Artists series

Paperback / softback

Description

The brilliance of Peter Paul Rubens' career changed forever the perceptions of painting and painters.

Here was a man whose astonishing gifts were allied to a personality so cosmopolitan, engaging, and virtuous that he could mingle as easily with kings as with fellow painters.

Rubens character and achievements fascinated his contemporaries, and these three biographies of the artist show the impact of his life and art on three very different observers.

Baglione, an Italian painter and art historian, records the remarkable success of Rubens visits to Rome; Sandrart, a German painter, writes on the later years of his career; and de Piles, one of the greatest early art critics, offers an evaluation of Rubens style that remains one of the most influential ever written."
