This talk looks at the life and work of the celebrated Flemish artist, Sir Peter Paul Rubens.
Rubens was an extraordinary figure, both a diplomat and artist, and is widely considered to be the most influential artist of the northern Baroque school. His subjects range from biblical and classical scenes to portraits and landscapes. He was one of the greatest figure painters of all time.
Whilst many of his works are grand, there was a gentler side expressed in family portraits and his wonderful landscapes near his home. We will explore many of his works during this talk.
Martin will provide a list of helpful books and links to further explore on a PDF following the talk via the blackboard.
