The Lion Hunt

From just 49 USD From just 149 USD
Among many differences from the Schleissheim series, in accordance with Rubens changing attitudes to both life and composition, the combat is equal, or even in the lions' favor in Lion Hunt. The action is spread out and not bounded by the frame, but the front plane is maintained as if by a sheet of glass. The forms are softer, limited by changes of tone rather than by outlines, and linked by a lattice of limbs and weapons. The painting shows to the full the impetuosity of Rubens' talent. The whirlwind composition is typically Baroque, while the horse charging headlong into the fight was an image perfectly suited to this artist's passionate temperament.
