    Here I will be discussing Peter Paul Rubens, and his piece Two Satyrs, completed in Munich, Germany in 1619.

    Rubens is known as one of the most influential painters of the Baroque era. An advocate of Humanist ideals, Rubens was also a devout Catholic; both of these traits were frequently demonstrated in the themes of many of his paintings. While Rubens was heavily influenced by Italian Renaissance artists (Getty), his works also followed the set of standards decreed in the Catholic church’s Council of Trent, completed in 1563, which ruled that art should appeal more to the common citizen and should also be free from ideas and imagery that went against the core ideals of the church. Ruben’s paintings, including Two Satyrs, show his Humanist tendencies without defying the church’s rulings that confusing imagery, profanity, and explicit sexuality should be avoided. This was in contrast to much of Renaissance art, which frequently featured sexualized nudity, non-Catholic themes, and the popular Mannerism style which was disorganized and confusing by nature. One example of such a painting is Agnolo Bronzino’s An Allegory with Venus and Cupid completed in 1545 (location unknown), which is featured below. This painting possesses all of these “undesirable” characteristics, such as intense eroticism, cluttered composition, and prominent figures from Greek mythos.

Peter Paul Rubens(born June 28, 1577, Siegen, Westphalia — died May 30, 1640, Antwerp, Spanish Neth.) Flemish painter and diplomat. After apprenticeships in Antwerp, he was admitted to its painters' guild in 1598. He went to Italy in 1600 and until 1608 worked for the duke of Mantua, who in 1603 sent him to Spain to present paintings and other gifts to Philip III, the first of many diplomatic missions he would perform for various courts over three decades. The enormous fame he would achieve made him welcome at royal courts, and sovereigns often discussed affairs of state while they sat for portraits. Returning to the Spanish Netherlands (now Belgium) in 1608, he was appointed court painter to the Spanish Habsburg regents, and over the next decade produced numerous altarpieces. A devout Catholic, he became the Counter-Reformation's chief artistic proponent in northern Europe. In 1620 he contracted to design 39 ceiling paintings for the Jesuit church, to be completed by assistants, including the young Anthony Van Dyck. In France he did 21 large canvases for Marie de Médicis and a tapestry cycle for Louis XIII; for Britain his Allegory of Peace and War (1629 – 30) commemorated the success of his own diplomatic efforts to end hostilities between Britain and Spain, and he decorated the royal Banqueting House for Charles I; in Spain he did more than 60 oil sketches for Philip IV's hunting lodge. Both Charles and Philip knighted him. His output was prodigious. He was the greatest exponent of Baroque painting's dynamism, vitality, and sensual exuberance. His profound stylistic influence extended over three centuries.
