About this title

Synopsis:


Peter Paul Rubens assembled a collection of art that was, for an artist and for the Netherlands, of unprecedented richness and breadth. Hundreds of pictures (including masterpieces by Titian, Bruegel, and Van Dyck) and prints and drawings, as well as ancient sculptures, coins, and gems, were joined with select works by Rubens himself and displayed in the artist's magnificent house in Antwerp. This richly illustrated volume is the first to treat the significance of the collection in depth, to document its major components, and to catalogue all the individual pieces in it.


Review:

"A contribution to Rubens studies which will be of lasting value."--Oliver Millar, The Times Literary Supplement

"[Muller] fully and effectively combines the techniques of the social historian, the intellectual historian, and the art historian in order to examine the cultural assumptions and achievements of the period. . . . That the story of Rubens as a collector can . . . cover so many aspects of the culture of seventeenth-century Europe is vivid testimony to the efficacy of Muller's integration of the techniques and interests of the historian and the art historian."--Theodore K. Rabb, Journal of Interdisciplinary History
