Peter Paul Rubens

Simultaneously painter and diplomat, Peter Paul Rubens, (1577-1640) was an essential personality in Europe’s 17th century artistic scene. He painted vast compositions for princely families of the time like the Marie de Medici cycle now housed in the Louvre Museum. He also personified the baroque vein in Northern Europe, developing a style of perpetual movement with luminous coloured strokes as in the “Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus” exhibited in Munich.
