I seem to remember your Ruebens’ posts.
Heading over to make sure!
I’d heard of Rubens but knew little about him. I see in his Wikipedia article that he “was an avid art collector and had one of the largest collections of art and books in Antwerp.” Good for him!
Yay… good for him indeed! 😉
Thank you Marina…. I left a longer comment on the original… as I don’t believe I caught that in 2020 when you first posted.. Sending LOVE and well wishes my friend ❤
Thank you for visiting the original tribute too, my dear friend!
More love and hugs your way!
Enjoyed browsing all the paintings Marina ❤
So happy to hear that, my friend!
I LOVE your tributes, Marina, especially as I start out my day. Your words, “Art towards a happy day” Is exactly what you bring to us all. Many thanks.
What I didn’t know until very recently, was Rubens was knighted by both Philip IV of Spain and Charles I of England. What an extraordinary life! His legacy is a gift to our world.
Extraordinary life and extraordinary talent. A true gift indeed.
I’m so happy you’re enjoying these tributes, my dear friend. Thank YOU!
Many hugs your way.
👌👌👌🖼️🎨🖌️ Have You a wonderful day dear Marina ☀️🌻🤗
You too, my dear friend!!
Sorry to report but not a good day as having to hang around waiting for a phone call. And outside when it’s not raining, it’s blowing a gale! We some of your sunshine 🌞.
Sending some right now!!!
Another artist I love.
Ah, good to hear!!! 😉
What a beautiful painting, that is. Love it
Happy you do!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo
I especially love his drawings and the painting of the old woman and boy with candles but there are too many muscular naked figures which whilst very skilfully painted don’t hold my attention! 😎 However, whilst so many years later, I think I can see the beginnings of some of John Constable’s work (?). The landscape with the dam is amazing; it reminds me of some Chinese/Korean paintings.
That one is one my my favorites too. The light is just perfect!!! You’re right about this landscape and Constable.
I hope you’re having a lovely day!
Sorry to report but not a good day as having to hang around waiting for a phone call. And outside when it’s not raining, it’s blowing
May that phone call come and may you get a better weather to go out!
Soft, surreal, and I’ve heard of him. Yamas!
Yamas to all three and yamas to a great day ahead, my friend! 😉
