    Parkstone International 2013; US$ 3.50

    鲁本斯,巴洛克绘画繁荣时期最伟大的艺术巨匠,从意大利文艺复兴中汲取了所有对其有用的精华,从而建立起了自己的风格。这个来自北方的艺术家希望并且实现了将佛兰德艺术与拉丁艺术融合起来,却不失自己热情四溢的个性与不断探索的想象力以及作为最伟大色彩大师的醉人发现。他的风格以对人体形态的绝妙把握和对华丽的明亮色彩极为丰富的运用而著名。对自己理智绝对自信的鲁本斯像个深受信任的使者带着浮夸的举止旅行于各个国家之间,因此也习惯了宫廷的生活。如果说米开朗基罗是激情澎湃的代表,那么鲁本斯也可以被认作是描绘生活喜悦和生机的高产代表。 more...
