Flemish Baroque Art
An introduction to Flemish Baroque Art is coming soon!

Baroque Painters
Anthony van Dyck | Artist Anthony van Dyck painted brilliant and elegant portraits of some of the leading luminaries of his time, including his striking Portrait of Charles I and a fashionable and influential likeness of James Stuart, Duke of Richmond and Lennox.

Jacob Jordaens | The beautiful paintings created by Jacob Jordaens reveal a softer side of Baroque art, which is demonstrated in his works representing The Holy Family and the fable of The Peasant and the Satyr.

Peter Paul Rubens | Rubens, the master of depicting supple flesh and dynamic scenes, personifies the Baroque artist in Flanders. He is legendary for paintings such as his delightful depiction of The Garden of Love and the robust rendering of The Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus.


Baroque and Rococo

Germain Bazin has written a delightful introduction to the art and artists of the Baroque and Rococo periods. Chapters explore the development of these important art movements in various countries, from Italy, to France, to Spain. And plenty of pictures accompany the text.
