Documenting the most ambitious exhibition of Flemish Baroque painting ever mounted in the United States, this massive catalogue provides excellent reproductions and lengthy analyses of 133 portraits, still lifes, genre scenes and depictions of religious and mythological subjects selected from dozens of international collections, including 33 works by Rubens and representative oils by Van Dyck, Jordaens, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Cornelis de Vos, Michiel Sweerts, Adriaen Brouwer, David Teniers the Younger, Jan Davidsz. de Heem, Frans Snyders and more than 40 other figures. Eight scholarly essays include a lengthy overview of the role of Rubens and other painters in the development of 17th-century Flemish art and discussions of such topics as the impact of the Counter Reformation on religious painting in the southern Netherlands, the collaborative nature of Rubens's studio practices, the varieties of genre and portrait painting popular during the period, and the formation of private art collections by middle-class patrons in Antwerp.
