Supremely talented and precocious, van Dyck enjoyed considerable success in Italy, Flanders, and eventually England, where he was the favorite painter of King Charles I. He painted notable religious and mythological canvases, but remains most famous for his extraordinarily vivid portraits. The name of this sitter, with his graceful pose and penetrating glance, is unknown. He was certainly a wealthy Genoese patrician, however. To convey this to future viewers of his portrait, he donned his richest apparel for the occasion, including a finely crafted suit of armor and his most expensive wide lace collar and cuffs.

The first series, now in the Louvre, told her own life story. The second was to tell the life of her husband Henry IV, but was never completed, and most of the scenes are known only from painted sketches like this one. The event here is a 1589 meeting between King Henry III of France (Catherine de' Medici's youngest son) and King Henry of Navarre, the future King Henry IV of France. Henry III had no heirs, and a rival faction of French nobles who wanted to usurp his throne had taken over Paris. His cousin Henry of Navarre, although Protestant and excommunicated by the Pope, was the rightful heir. At the meeting portrayed here, Henry III promised to declare Henry of Navarre his heir, if the famous warrior king would help him to recapture Paris. To symbolize the agreement, Rubens shows the two kings clasping hands around the royal French scepter and a figure behind them holding an insignia of two clasped hands. A few months later, Henry III was stabbed by an assassin. On his deathbed, he made Henry IV promise to convert to Catholicism. Henry IV's famous comment was "Paris is well worth a mass" ("Paris vaut vien une messe").

Arriving at night, he falls asleep between two trees and at dawn is awakened by the playful shouts of the princess Nausicaa and her attendants. Rubens has depicted the moment when Odysseus emerges to ask for food and shelter. The action occurs in the foreground of the canvas; the landscape is rich in terrestrial detail and is filled with a variety of atmospheric effects. Rubens is often considered the most versatile and influential Baroque artist of 17th century northern Europe. Highly educated, his knowledge of Classical art and literature was thorough and complex. In order to fulfill innumerable private commissions, he collaborated on many works with other artists and students in his studio. Although Rubens provided designs and oversaw production, his personal involvement with individual paintings varied. Replicas were frequently painted by assistants. A smaller version of this painting, attributed to Rubens rather than his studio, is today in the Pitti Palace in Florence, Italy. [Gallery label text]", "Dedication" : "Gift of Dr. and Mrs. Fred W.
