"For the great Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640), drawing was a fundamental activity. In Rubens's large Antwerp studio, drawings were made for the creation of new paintings; collaborators used them to assist the master on these paintings; and they served as instructional material for pupils. The drawings were guarded from the outside world because they were considered a kind of studio secret; the competition could exploit designs for new compositions if they were released prematurely. How precious Rubens considered his drawings is evident from his testament, which stipulated that they should be passed on to any of his sons or sons-in-law who chose to be a painter; only when it was clear, once all his children were grown, that none would become an artist or marry one could the drawings be dispersed." "This volume presents, in full-color reproductions, more than one hundred of the finest and most representative of Rubens's drawings, ranging from delightful renderings of children and elegant portraits of noblemen and women to vigorous animal studies and beautiful landscapes. Essays by Anne-Marie Logan and Michiel C. Plomp provide overviews of Rubens's career as a draftsman and of the eventual dispersal of his drawings among collectors some fifteen years after his death. The authors discuss the various functions of Rubens's drawings as preparatory studies for paintings, sculpture, prints, and book illustrations and as private studies meant largely for the artist's own enjoyment." "The volume also includes a sampling of the artist's early anatomical studies and copies after antique sculpture, made during his years in Italy (1600-1608). In all likelihood it was also in Italy that Rubens began to collect old master drawings. Eventually he amassed a large quantity of other artists' drawings, most of them by sixteenth-century Italian masters, and he retouched, restored, or reworked many of them. These retouched sheets - several of which are reproduced herein - offer additional insight into his creativity. They are also a starting point for a discussion of the fortunes of Rubens's drawings among collectors."--BOOK JACKET
Rubens : a master in the making by David Jaffé( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 727 libraries worldwide
"Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) was a prodigious artist and one of the most extraordinary figures of the seventeenth century. He eventually became the dominant international painter of his generation, and this book traces his progress from hesitant beginnings in the late 1590s through to the first works made after his triumphant return to Antwerp in 1608. Most of the eight intervening years were spent in Italy, where he was inspired by classical sculpture, by the work of Renaissance masters - above all Michelangelo and Raphael - and by the revolutionary styles of Caravaggio and other contemporaries." "This book follows the artist's creative engagement with these sources and others, exploring where Rubens went and, more importantly, what he saw. He studied and copied avidly, finally transforming his influences into a style that, in paintings such as The Fall of Plaeton (National Gallery of Art, Washington), Ecce Homo (State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg) and Samson and Delilah (The National Gallery, London) is entirely, breathtakingly, his own."--Jacket

Rubens & Brueghel : a working friendship by Anne T Woollett( Book )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Dutch and held by 562 libraries worldwide
"Rubens and Brueghel: A Working Friendship is the first international loan exhibition devoted to the artists' collaborative works and an investigation of their working methods. Assembled here are some of the most important works of Brueghel and Rubens's partnership - from the early war themes, to mythological landscapes and allegories, to iconic paintings of the Madonna and Child surrounded by garlands of fruit and flowers - as well as a select group of works executed with other collaborators, including Hans Rottenhammer, Hendrick de Clerck, Hendrick van Balen, and Frans Snyders. Together, these paintings reveal the nature of collaboration as practiced in the Netherlands in this period. What also emerges is the unique character of Brueghel and Rubens's conceptual alliance - a rare partnership of equals, a complex and reciprocal relationship, that gave rise to works of unparalleled delight."--Jacket

Rubens, the passion of Christ by J. Richard Judson( Book )
9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 222 libraries worldwide
"Rubens was well placed to take advantage of the increasing demand for scenes of Christ's Passion in the Southern Netherlands at the beginning of the 17th century. He had developed a reputation for his religious paintings in Italy, and his return to Antwerp coincided with the efforts of the Catholic Church to restore and replace altarpieces damaged by the Calvinists." "The experience of Italy had fostered Rubens's interest in both the historical and the human aspects of Christ's Passion. The strong influence of classical sculpture and of Titan, Michelangelo and Caravaggio is evident in the monumental quality of his compositions; but he also valued the emotional intensity of Northern masters like Rogier van der Weyden and Quentin Massys. He made many innovations to traditional representations in his concern for accuracy, especially in disputed subjects like the Elevation of the Cross. Rubens's success in transforming all these diverse influences to his own distinctive style is a tribute to his deeply held religious beliefs and his determination to give his viewers the sense of witnessing a moment in history. The images that Rubens created were appropriated throughout Europe."--BOOK JACKET
Théorie de la figure humaine by Peter Paul Rubens( Book )
53 editions published between 1773 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 209 libraries worldwide
Il y a une grande esthétique romantique, c'est celle de Karl W.E Solger (1780-1819) -- une esthétique qui accepte la fragilité du beau et fait de l'ironie l'attitude de l'artiste moderne. Philologue (il œuvra à une somme sur la mythologie grecque et sa traduction des tragédies de Sophocle, adaptée pour la scène par Goethe, reste une référence) et philosophe (il occupa la chaire de philosophie à Berlin durant l'interrègne entre Fichte et Hegel), Solger installe les arts dans un rôle propédeutique. Sans renoncer à la rigueur d'un système, il privilégie la mise à l'épreuve de la pensée dans l'entretien, restituant dans ses écrits la force de son amitié et la vivacité de ses échanges intellectuels avec le poète Ludwig Tieck. Un dialogue, Erwin. Quatre entretiens sur le beau et l'art, paru en 1815, des Cours d'esthétique rédigés en 1819 et publiés dix années plus tard, une longue critique des Cours sur l'art et la littérature dramatiques d'A. W. Schlegel, une correspondance largement inédite, tel est l'essentiel de l'œuvre esthétique de Solger que ce volume propose pour la première fois en français
