Classic 1000 piece puzzle.
Through the art of Peter-Paul Rubens (1577-1640), all the power of Flemish Baroque is expressed. The painter, active in the city of Antwerp (the economic centre of 17th century Europe), was a court painter, a religious painter and a history painter. In order to carry out his numerous commissions, the Homeric Rubens (as Delacroix put it) knew how to surround himself with an efficient workshop. All the more so as he was also involved in the diplomatic affairs of his time. Rubens enjoyed an artistic and social prestige unusual for a seventeenth-century artist. His influence would be decisive on the painters of colour of the following centuries such as Watteau, Delacroix or Renoir.
"The Four Continents"
Also known as The Four Rivers of Paradise, is an oil painting by the Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens, dating from the 1610's. He paints the female personifications of four continents (Europe, Asia, Africa and America) sitting with the personifications of their great rivers, the Danube, the Ganges, the Nile and the Río de la Plata.
