Rubens and Antwerp is a comprehensive but accessible introduction to the life and work of Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640), one of the greatest artists in Western history. It places Rubens in his time and devotes considerable attention to the world in which he lived. This new, multifaceted introduction to Rubens thus involves plunging into the glorious past of Antwerp, the city where Rubens spent most of his life. This book is also a practical guide for the art-lover visiting the different locations in Antwerp where work by Rubens can be seen. The museums and churches of Antwerp contain a hundred or so paintings, drawings, designs and sketches by Rubens. A large number of them are open to the public. This book turns a visit to the lively and beautiful cultural city of Antwerp into an exciting Rubens route.
