Fine Art Friday - the Letter R Edition

| | Comments (2)

There are a lot of wonderful arty "R"s out there. It was impossible to pick only one, so the letter "R" may continue for several weeks of Fine Art Friday! But to start with I picked Peter Paul Rubens. If you want to see scads of his work, go to the website Gallery of Art.

On that website, Rubens is described as "a prolific seventeenth-century Flemish and European painter, and a proponent of an exuberant Baroque style that emphasized movement, color, and sensuality."

I say, Ya think?

Rubens work is so exuberant that I have elected to put larger pictures up than I normally do. It takes a larger picture to see even part of what is going on in a Rubens painting. Here are four I picked, out of a zillion I liked:


Christ at Simon the Pharisee


Descent from the Cross


Fall of the Rebel Angels


The Holy Family with Saint Anne

Happy Friday, ya'll!


I really like that St. Anne. So grandmotherly.

Good stuff, Terry.
