Peter Paul Rubens Fine Art Pages: $9.00
Peter Paul Rubens was a Flemish Baroque painter in the 1600s. I just love his work, both because of the wide range of subject matter and styles that he did so well, but also because of the beauty and warmth that come through so many of his works, particularly those featuring his family. So often old time portraits can seem stoic and severe, and to me Rubens shares devotion and chemistry in relationships that seem very much in tune with a way people of the 21st century can appreciate!
Enjoy 19 printable works of art in this collection, ranging from Biblical themes, ancient Greece, royalty and wealth, genre works, and many beautiful portraits featuring his family. You will love this collection!

Well, both girls became very excited when we saw two Matisse prints hanging in our local public library. (Fine Arts pages by Matisse happen to be hanging in the upstairs bathroom right now.) I reminded the girls that the artist was Matisse. And then my 4-year old (who is always interested in the titles of the paintings) said to me, “I know what that painting there is called,” and she paused. “Dessert: Harmony in Red,” she said correctly. The library security guard standing nearby nearly fell over, she was so surprised. 🙂
Anyhow, I just wanted to thank you for helping expose my family to Fine Arts — you have truly enriched our lives, and it’s making a difference in our learning.
