Having fallen, therefore, into great grief and much despondency, they said among themselves: Having therefore made an assembly against Pauland having considered many proposals, it seemed good to them to go to Nero the emperor, to ask him not to allow Paul to come to Rome. Having therefore got in readiness not a few presents, and having carried them with them, with supplication they came before him, saying:
Although he was raised as a Catholic and painted Counter-Reformation pieces f or the church, he was born into a Protestant family. Inhis mother and father fled the Spanish Netherlands due to persecution of Protestants.
His father was imprisoned for the affair and two years after his death, Peter and his family returned to Antwerp, in the Netherlands, and beginning at the age of twelve was raised as a Catholic. He began his artistic apprenticeship at age fourteen and completed his education inwhen he became an independent master painter.
During his career, Rubens traveled to Italy Peter and paul Spain, and was influenced by the great works of Titian, Veronese, and Tintoretto, as well as Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and Michelangelo.
InRubens moved into the house that would become his studio, where he taught students and created most of his paintings. Peter and paul house has now become the Rubenshius Museum. Throughout his life, he was relied upon not only as a master painter, but one whose diplomat talents were required by many a court.
Between andhe traveled between England and Spain, in attempts to create a truce between the two nations. Four years after the death of his first wife, Rubens, who was 53 years old at the time, was married to a 16 year old named Helene Fourment, whom he used as model in many of his later paintings.
He is considered the most influential artist of Flemish Baroque tradition. Rubens' highly charged compositions reference erudite aspects of classical and Christian history. His unique and immensely popular Baroque style emphasized movement, color, and sensuality, which followed the immediate, dramatic artistic style promoted in the Counter-Reformation.
Rubens specialized in making 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 and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV of Spain and Charles I of England.
Rubens was a prolific artist. His commissioned works were mostly " history paintings ", which included religious and mythological subjects, and hunt scenes. He painted portraits, especially of friends, and self-portraits, and in later life painted several landscapes.
Rubens designed tapestries and prints, as well as his own house. He also oversaw the ephemeral decorations of the royal entry into Antwerp by the Cardinal-Infante Ferdinand in His drawings are predominantly very forceful but not overly detailed. He also made great use of oil sketches as preparatory studies.
He was one of the last major artists to make consistent use of wooden panels as a support medium, even for very large works, but he used canvas as well, especially when the work needed to be sent a long distance.
For altarpieces he sometimes painted on slate to reduce reflection problems. He was named in honour of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, because he was born on their solemnity. His father, a Calvinist, and mother fled Antwerp for Cologne inafter increased religious turmoil and persecution of Protestants during the rule of the Habsburg Netherlands by the Duke of Alba.
The family returned to Cologne the next year. Intwo years after his father's death, Rubens moved with his mother Maria Pypelincks to Antwerp, where he was raised as a Catholic. Religion figured prominently in much of his work, and Rubens later became one of the leading voices of the Catholic Counter-Reformation style of painting he had said "My passion comes from the heavens, not from earthly musings".
In Antwerp, Rubens received a Renaissance humanist education, studying Latin and classical literature. By fourteen he began his artistic apprenticeship with Tobias Verhaeght.
Subsequently, he studied under two of the city's leading painters of the time, the late Mannerist artists Adam van Noort and Otto van Veen. Much of his earliest training involved copying earlier artists' works, such as woodcuts by Hans Holbein the Younger and Marcantonio Raimondi's engravings after Raphael.Peter Paul's Variation Serlio II is an original color lithograph created by the contemporary German artist around This impression is printed upon hand-made, Rives laid paper and with full, deckled margins as published by Grafos Verlag in the limited edition of seventy five impressions.
