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