This gorgeous book focuses on the landscape paintings of Peter Paul Rubens, in particular one of the greatest treasures in London& National Gallery-Landscape with Het Steen. Brown places Rubens& landscapes in the tradition of Flemish landscape painting, analyzes his working methods, describes his years at Het Steen, and examines the influence of his works on British painters.

Rubens was a remarkable individual. He began to paint more landscapes, often for his own enjoyment, rather than for sale. Not only was he an enormously successful painter whose workshop produced a staggering number of works; but he also played an important diplomatic role in 17th-century European politics. He was clearly a charming and attractive companion, described as having 'a tall stature, a stately bearing, with a regularly shaped face, rosy cheeks, chestnut brown hair, sparkling eyes but with passion restrained, a laughing air, gentle and courteous'.

Christopher Brown takes a fresh look at the development of Rubens's landscape paintings, re-examining their chronology and their construction, and reconsidering the works in the context of Ruben's life and artistic concerns. He begins his survey by placing the landscapes in the tradition of Flemish landscape painting, in particular showing their relationship to the work of Pieter Bruegel the Elder (whose Flight into Egypt was owned by Rubens). He looks at Rubens's early landscapes, completed in the years following his return from Italy in 1608, immediately raising one of the principal themes of the book: how these paintings were made. A chapter is devoted to Landscape with Het Steen, in which he describes Rubens's life as a country gentleman - his purchase of the estate of Het Steen and the time he spent there in the 1630s with his second wife and young family - and discusses the composition of Landscape with Het Steen and its pendant the Landscape with a Rainbow (now in the Wallace Collection, London). He also considers Rubens's pastoral landscapes of the 1630s, showing how their mood was influenced by classical literature.Rubens's working methods - his drawing from nature, his adaptation of landscape motifs in the studio, his use of oil sketches - are compared with contemporary landscape practice, and in a chapter on the making of the landscapes Dr. Brown describes the construction, preparation and the ground of the panels Rubens used for his landscape paintings, and the panelmakers who made them. Finally, he considers the last years at Het Steen and the ways in which Rubens's essentially private landscape paintings were made known during his lifetime and later, for example through engravings, and looks at the influence of these works on British painters, particularly Gainsborough and Constable.
