Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) was a Flemish artist. He is considered the most influential artist of Flemish Baroque tradition. Rubens’s exceedingly charged compositions reference intellectual aspects of classical and Christian history. His unique and colossally popular Baroque style emphasized movement, color, and sensuality, which taken after the immediate, dramatic artistic style advanced within the Counter-Reformation. Rubens specialized in making altarpieces, portraits, landscapes, and history depictions of mythological and allegorical subjects.
