Item description for Peter Paul Rubens: The Life Of Achilles by Annetje Boersma, Guy Delmarcel, Fiona Healy & Peter Paul Rubens...

With his many facets, his virtuosity, and his prodigious output, Peter Paul Rubens is one of the giants in the history of art. Peter Paul Rubens: The Life of Achilles sheds light on a relatively unfamiliar aspect of Rubens' enormous body of work, a series of tapestries featuring the Greek hero Achilles. Circa 1630-1635, Rubens painted the designs for these remarkable tapestries, depicting eight decisive moments in the life of Achilles. First, he made eight small sketches in oil, some of the finest of his oeuvre. Then the artist and his studio produced large modelli, painted in oil on panels, that further refined his sketches. The exquisite sketches and modelli led finally to magnifications in full-scale cartoons, which were placed under the loom for the tapestry weavers to work off of. For the first time, this volume brings together the multiple works that make up the Achilles series, scattered as they are among various public and private collections throughout the world. Here the process from sketch to tapestry is followed in magnificent color illustrations. Accompanying texts consider the genesis, history, and iconography of the series.

Achilles: The life of the man who won the battle to the dead  Aug 15, 2007
Achilles is the biggest warrior the world have ever seen.
he is a man whom courage took him to win the fiercest battles of all times which became him in the most remenbered warrior of all times, and by that he reach the inmortality, which was his dream.

I can say to every one that follow achilles example and fight for what you long for, have in mind that the obstacles must be afraid of you, because no one can against you, thats the best learning you can get from achilles life, never give up, every fail is an oportunity to stand up and fight and getting the victory.

Remenber. you can beat whatever, just with faith and determination, you can do it, you can be the best of all times just like ACHILLES!!!
