Summary

Tim Marlow explores the life and work of 17th-century artist Peter Paul Rubens, who enjoyed an active and eventful career. He was regarded as the chief exponent of the Baroque style, merging the grace of the Italian High Renaissance with the realism and landscapes of the northern tradition, and was perhaps best known for painting voluptuous female nudes within large-scale mythological allegories.
