Peter Paul Rubens
Peter Paul Rubens was a prolific 17th-century Baroque painter from Antwerp. His large body of over 1,000 works include historical and religious scenes, mythology, and portraits. He frequently worked on commissions for royals and came to be known as “the prince of painters and the painter of princes.” Rubens is also regarded for his signature depictions of full-figured nude women; this type of figure is now called “Rubenesque.”
