Peter Paul Rubens - andromeda




Sir Peter Paul Rubens (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈrybə(n)s]; 28 June 1577 – 30 May 1640) was a prolific seventeenth-century Flemish Baroque painter, and a proponent of an extravagant Baroque style that emphasized movement, color, and sensuality. He is well-known for his Counter-Reformation altarpieces, portraits, landscapes, and history paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects.
In addition to running a large studio in Antwerp that produced paintings popular with nobility and art collectors throughout Europe, Rubens was a classically educated humanist scholar, art collector, and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV, King of Spain, and Charles I, King of England.

He is with Hieronymus Bosch the father of modern comics, all his paintings tell a story that you can read while carefully analysing his paintings. enjoy

#4 Eyck, Jan van (1395-1441)

He was very active in the actual Belgium and the Netherlands, he is traditionally known as "the father of oil painting", i'm sure you'll appreciate his artistic skills.


The mirror is a reference to the use of mirrors he used to make this painting, this is what David Hockney explains in his book 'Secret Knowledge'
