64613 Christoffel Plantin RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel Christoffel Plantin Oil on canvas Museum Plantin-Moretus, Antwerp Christoffel (Christophe) Plantin (1520-1589), French printer, founder of an important printing house and publisher of the Antwerp Polyglot Bible. Plantin learned bookbinding and bookselling at Caen, Normandy, and settled in 1549 as a bookbinder in Antwerp. A bad arm wound seems to have led him (about 1555) to turn to typography. His many publications were distinguished by their excellent typography, and he was original in using copper, instead of wood, engravings for book illustrations. His greatest venture, the Biblia regia, which would fix the original text of Old and New Testaments, was supported by Philip II of Spain in spite of clerical opposition and appeared in eight volumes during 1569-72. When Antwerp was plundered by the Spaniards in 1576 and Plantin had to pay a ransom, he established a branch office in Paris and then, in 1583, settled in Leiden as the typographer of the new university of the states of Holland, leaving his much-reduced business in Antwerp in the hands of his sons-in-law, John Moerentorf (Moretus) and Francis van Ravelinghen (Raphelengius). But in 1585 Plantin returned to Antwerp and Raphelengius took over the business in Leiden. After Plantin's death, the Antwerp business was carried on by Moretus, but it declined during the second half of the 17th century. All was religiously preserved, however, and in 1876 the city of Antwerp acquired the buildings and their contents and created the Plantin-Moretus Museum.

However, this can be traced back to Rubens's Madonna in Floral Wreath (in which the floral decoration was painted by Jan Brueghel the Elder). This represents a picture within a picture with an authoritative religious significance, encircled by a floral arrangement and cherubs. Unlike Seghers, however, Rubens did not quote Mary and Jesus as historical traditions or pictorial relics. Instead he preferred to give the impression that they were physically present, even though the motif of a picture within a picture would have been ideally suited for illusionist stylization.

We know this from a study drawing for the portrait, which is in the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York.

64192 Raising of the Cross RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel Raising of the Cross 1610 Oil on panel, 460 x 340 cm (centre panel), 460 x 150 cm (wings) O.-L. Vrouwekathedraal, Antwerp Rubens painted the triptych for the high altar of Antwerp's church of St Walpurgis, which was demolished in 1817. That explains the inclusion of Amand, Walpurgis and Eligius on the back side of the wings. The triptych marked Rubens' sensational introduction of the Baroque style into Northern art. The diagonal composition is full of dynamism and animated colour. The artist had just returned from Italy, with the memory of Michelangelo, Caravaggio and Venetian painting still fresh in his mind. The Raising of the Cross is the perfect summation of the unruly bravura that marked his first years in Antwerp. In the centre nine executioners strain with all their might to raise the cross from which Christ's pale body hangs. The dramatic action is witnessed from the left by St John, the Virgin Mary and a group of weeping women and children. On the right, a Roman officer watches on horseback while soldiers in the background are crucifying the two thieves. In other words, the subject is spread across all three panels. The outside of the wings shows Saints Amand, Walpurgis, Eligius and Catherine of Alexandria. The painting was confiscated by the French in 1794 and taken to Paris. It was returned to Antwerp in 1815, following the defeat of Napoleon, and installed in the church of Our Lady. During restoration in the 1980s, successive layers of varnish, which had form an even grey veil over the painting, were removed. The burgeoning talent of the confident young Rubens is more clearly visible now in the intense emotion of the figures, the contrasting lighting, the glow of the labouring bodies and the gleam of the armour and costly robes. , Artist: RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel , Raising of the Cross , 1601-1650 , Flemish , painting , religious

64194 Raising of the Cross RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel Raising of the Cross 1610 Oil on panel, 460 x 150 cm O.-L. Vrouwekathedraal, Antwerp Rubens painted the triptych for the high altar of Antwerp's church of St Walpurgis, which was demolished in 1817. That explains the inclusion of Amand, Walpurgis and Eligius on the back side of the wings. According to tradition, Bishop Amand founded that church - Antwerp's first - some time around 650. He features on the outside of the wings in the company of Walpurgis, a 8th-century saint, who supposedly lived for several years as a hermitess in the church's crypt, before becoming abbess of the convent she founded in Bavaria. In the right shutter, Rubens placed St Eligius, the blacksmith and bishop. Eligius was the patron saint of Antwerp's blacksmiths, who had their altar at St Walpurgis. Catherine of Alexandria stands in front of him with her martyr's sword and palm branch. The prominent position she is given in the altarpiece no doubt had something to do with a special devotion in the church, perhaps a confraternity of St Catherine, of which, however, no details are known. , Artist: RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel , Raising of the Cross: Sts Amand and Walpurgis , 1601-1650 , Flemish , painting , religious
64182 Return of the Prodigal Son RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel Return of the Prodigal Son 1618 Oil on canvas, 107 x 155 cm Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp When Rubens died in 1640, he still possessed his Prodigal Son of 1618. Amongst his many grand altarpieces and dramatic mythological subjects, the creation of this rural scene, intended for his own living room, must have given him a great deal of pleasure. The biblical subject - depicted bottom right - serves merely as a vehicle for the painting of one of his earliest landscapes. , Artist: RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel , Return of the Prodigal Son , 1601-1650 , Flemish , painting , religious

63045 Summer RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel Summer 142,8 x 222,8 cm Royal Collection, Windsor The painting is a companion scene to Winter (also in the Royal Collection), although it was only when both pictures were in the collection of Frederick, Prince of Wales, that they seem to have been treated as a pair. X-ray examination reveals that the priming on all the additional pieces of canvas is identical, but differs from that of the central section of this work. It appears that the design on the initial piece of canvas had not been fully resolved in all respects by the time the extra portions were added. The join on the left is on a line with the tall windswept trees, which seem to have been painted over the sky and therefore may be regarded as an adaptation of the original design, which most probably incorporated a clear view through to the horizon. On the right the design has been more radically changed as a result of the addition. A steep bank (still visible to the naked eye) originally closed the composition, but this was painted out so that the horizon could be extended in the upper half and a further group of farm buildings introduced in the middle distance. The addition along the lower edge allowed for the horse and cart in the immediate foreground. In effect, if the additions are discounted, the original composition remains an entity in its own right, but the changes alter the dynamics of the painting, placing greater emphasis on the peasants wending their way to market. The composition of Summer is distinguished. There is an emphasis on contrasting diagonals that reinforces the sense of movement begun by the figures in the foreground. The eye is plunged into the distance across a glorious landscape that is positively pantheistic in its celebration of nature (note the cow being mounted in the centre of the composition). Regardless of differences in scale and style, a telling comparison can be made between Summer and The Flemish Fair by Jan Brueghel the Elder. Interestingly, it has been suggested that the composition of Summer depends upon a lost painting by Pieter Bruegel the Elder entitled On the Way to Market, only known today through an anonymous drawn copy in the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, Munich.

Buckingham was extremely unpopular, and the failure of his aggressive, erratic foreign policy increased the tensions that eventually exploded in the Civil War between the Royalists and the Parliamentarians.

63958 The Road to Calvary RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel The Road to Calvary 1634-37 Oil on canvas, rounded at the top, 569 x 355 cm Musees Royaux des Beaux-Arts, Brussels This painting was commissioned in 1634 for the high altar of the Abbey of Affligem, then one of the most important monasteries in the Low Countries. Tensions inside the monastery may explain why this monumental work was not delivered until 1637. In this production of his mature period, Rubens masterfully combines two artistic traditions. The first of these is that of the large single-frame altarpieces that were to replace the older polyptychs in the Southern Low Countries in the 17th century. With their exceptional scale and their strongly vertical format, they faced artists with the problem of constructing a convincing compositional unity from a series of related themes in a vertical format. As an artist gifted with one of the greatest compositional and narrative talents of his age, Rubens fulfilled his task masterfully. Instead of dividing the painting into an upper and lower register, a solution that he had often applied following Titian, he elects here to represent Christ's ascension to the place of his execution on Calvary in an uninterrupted zigzag movement. The thrust from below to above is achieved both in the colouring, with a balanced rhythm of localised concentrations of colour, and also iconographically, with the successive tableaux of the executioners with the two thieves, the holy women with Mary and Veronica, and ending with the Roman officers on horseback with their flapping pennants. The centre-point of the composition is Christ's face that St Veronica is wiping. Turned towards the viewer, it forms a direct call to the faithful to follow his life and to think on their own sins that had to be redeemed by Christ's suffering. This procedure descends directly from the tradition of devotional art, with small-scale pictures intended for individual meditation. The genius of Rubens' invention lies precisely in the combination of the two pictorial traditions, breathing new life into the ancient devotional tradition within a contemporary, counter-reformation form of altar decoration, whilst at the same time enriching the broad, sweeping movement of such a monumental high altarpiece with the more intimate emotionality of smaller devotional paintings. , Artist: RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel , The Road to Calvary , 1601-1650 , Flemish , painting , religiou

64581 Triumphal Entry of Henry IV into Paris RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel Triumphal Entry of Henry IV into Paris 1627-30 Oil on canvas, 380 x 692 cm Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence This canvas belongs to the unfinished cycle dedicated to Henry IV and shows the king, converted and victorious, entering Paris on 22 March 1594 at the end of a long period of internal struggles. Renouncing any reference to time or place, Rubens illustrates the episode in a complex allegorical context, creating an analogy with the triumph of a Roman emperor. In particular, the group of the crowned king and the architecture of the triumphal arch (derived from the Roman prototype of the arch of Titus), surmounted by soldiers and horses, arise from en evident reinterpretation of Mantegna's painting of Caesar's Chariot. *** Keywords: ************* Author: RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel Title: Triumphal Entry of Henry IV into Paris, 1601-1650, Flemish , painting , historical
