Rubens's Spirit: From Ingenuity to Genius
Famed for his religious compositions and baroque portraits and landscapes, Rubens is today considered one of the most influential artists of the Dutch Golden Age. Published as part of the Renaissance Lives series, this book discusses his life and work in relation to the themes of spirit, ingenuity and genius.
Author Alexander Marr argues that the reception of Rubens’ work was a turning point that transformed modern ingenuity into Romantic genius. These interconnected themes are explored across the artist’s entire career, including his Italian altarpiece paintings and his collaborations with fellow Antwerp artists.
A fascinating foray into the Flemish artist’s work and life, the book also discusses his complex relationship with the spirit of pleasure. The final chapters conclude with the connection between his late landscapes and genius loci – the spirit of place.
