Item description for Peter Paul Rubens, 1577-1640: The Homer of Painting (Taschen Basic Art) by Gilles Neret...

The Flemish baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens, born on June 28, 1577, died May 30, 1640 was the most renowned northern European artist of his day, and and is now widely recognised as one of the foremost painters in Western art history.

Publishers Description
Renowned among his contemporaries as one of the foremost painters of his era, Flemish baroque artist Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) practically revolutionized northern European art. A shrewd businessman, international ambassador, passionate scholar, devout Catholic, and loving family man, Rubens--fluent in six languages, no less--cared about nothing more than painting, and thus devoted his life to it. Combining typical Flemish realism with classical themes influenced by the Renaissance, Rubens caught the attention of all of Europe and helped put his native Antwerp on the map. His very profitable workshop of accomplished artists, one of whom was Van Dyck, completed over 2000 works under his supervision.
