Rubens and His Legacy

$ 75
This product is SOLD OUT.


Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) is undoubtedly the most influen?tial of all Flemish painters. Himself indebted to Titian, Rubens became a role model to Van Dyck, Rembrandt, and Vel?zquez, and influenced artists well beyond his time, including figures such as C?zanne, Picasso, Bacon, and Freud. This sumptuous new volume explores Rubens's legacy thematically, through a series of sections devoted to violence, power, lust, compassion, elegance, and poetry. Each section will link artists across the centuries in their references to Rubens, from Van Dyck and Watteau to Manet, Daumier, Renoir, and Van Gogh, as well as Gainsborough, Constable, and Turner. Hardcover, 352 pages
