ART 295-02 - Special Topic: Rubens and the Rest of the World

4 credits (Fall)
Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) was arguably the most original, successful, and erudite painter of his age. He was also a spy, diplomat, and courtier par excellence who changed the face of Baroque art-even if portraiture was his least favorite genre. This course explores the world of Rubens, from his Italian years to his commissions in Paris, Madrid, Flanders, and London. Van Dyck, Velázquez, and Rubens’s legacy in modern art will also be considered.

Prerequisite: ART 103 .
Instructor: Lyon
