Description

Tha age of Rubens heralded a new world in Flemish painting. Rubens, Jordaens, Van Dyck, Teniers, Seghers, Fyt and others, drew on the content of the old Flemish traditions and used it to elaborate new techniques, a new art of painting. New genres appeared and others were transformed - portraiture reached its apogee with Van Dyck, and the veneration of the female form triumphed with Rubens and Jordeans. This CD-ROM celebrates the creative genius of the era. It is part of a series of six CD-ROM titles which examine the work of Bruegel, Rembrandt, Rodin, Rubens, Van Eyck and Vermeer. The work of these eminent artists and their immediate contemporaries is set against the history of their life and times, illuminating their influences and inspirations in a comprehensive yet accessible way. The CD-ROMs include reproductions which facilitate study of the paintings as a whole or in detail, while pre-set details highlight the minutiae of the paintings. Cross referencing between the paintings, text and index shows the artists, themes and techniques, as well as providing social and biographical details.show more
