Abstract

Helena was to inspire some of the most personal and poignant portraits of Rubens' later career, and their marriage was as fruitful as it was blissful, producing five children. Rubens often identified Helena with the goddess Venus. The art of Peter Paul Rubens is a fusion of the traditions of Flemish realism with the classicizing tendencies of the Italian Renaissance. Rubens was able to infuse his own astounding vitality into a powerful and exuberant style that came to epitomize the Baroque art of the 17th century.
