Peter Paul Rubens (June 28, 1577 – May 30, 1640)

A greatly lauded painter and a favorite of mine, Peter Paul Rubens was a difficult painter for whom to just choose a few pieces out of so much greatness, but here are the ones that most caught my eye:

Fall of the Rebel Angels 

Perseus Liberating Andromeda 

Two Satyrs

The Fall of Phaeton 

Now for two personal paintings, the first is of Peter with his first wife, Isabella Brandt, and the second is of his daughter, Clara. The painting of Peter's daughter always seemed to me to be one of his most breathing works.

The Honeysuckle Bower
