Peter Paul Rubens - famous paintings

Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640), was a Flemish painter, one of the most prominent artists of Baroque. First years of his artistic activity he spent in Rome where he became acquainted with works of Titian, Michelangelo and Caravaggio. In 1608 he came back to Antwerp where he became court painter of Archduke Albert. He received numerous orders from court, churches and urban patriciate. From the very beginning paintings brought him fortune and esteem. In his artistic activity dominated religious ('Raising of the Cross', 'The Last Judgment', 'Adoration of the Magi') and mythological ('The battle of the Amazons', 'Venus') coverage. Rubens created also portraits of women, images of men, hunting scenes, romantic landscapes and genre scenes from the life of the folk. He frequently showed the beauty of naked body – Rubens's art nude characterised by abundance of shapes became one of the synonims of Baroque painting ( 'Judgment of Paris', 'Three Graces'). Artistic activity of Rubens fully expresses the concepts of Baroque – it is characterised by dynamics, spontaneity, freedom of composition, love for wealth and splendor and excellent sense of colour.
