Sir Peter Paul Rubens, born 28 June 1577, Siegen, Westphalia (now Germany)
and died 30 May 1640 (aged 62) Antwerp, Spanish Netherlands (now Belgium),
was a Flemish Baroque painter, and a proponent
of an extravagant Baroque style that emphasised movement, colour, and sensuality.
He is well known for his Counter-Reformation altarpieces, portraits, landscapes, and history paintings
of mythological and allegorical subjects.
In addition to running a large studio in Antwerp that produced paintings popular with nobility
and art collectors throughout Europe, Rubens was a classically educated humanist scholar
and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV, King of Spain, and Charles I, King of England.
