Peter Paul Rubens was the most resourceful and significant Baroque artist in northern Europe in the 17th century. Highly gifted and internationally oriented, the Flemish artist received commissions... More > from almost all of Europe's major courts. His art blends the High Renaissance of Italy, with which he was familiar from an eight-year stay on the Italian peninsula, with northern realism. Having a phenomenal knowledge of classical antiquity, he was the prototype of the intellectual artist.
International diplomat, savvy businessman, devout Catholic, fluent in six languages, an intellectual, Rubens was always first a painter.

Alfred Sisley was French impressionist landscape painter, founding member of the Impressionist movement. He received an excellent education, even studying English and business in London before... More > returning to Paris in 1862. Sisley took the opportunity to study the works of John Constable and William Turner. However he wasn’t attracted to the business and dedicated to painting. Following 1871, Sisley lived at Moret-sur-Loing and painted splendid small-town landscapes that reveal a wistful, lyrical sensibility. Influenced by his friends Renoir and Monet in his selection of colors, Sisley was less daring than Monet in his use of the "rainbow palette" and closer to the Barbizon School tradition. Among the Impressionists Sisley has been overshadowed by Monet, although his work most resembles that of Camille Pissarro. He concentrated on landscape more consistently than any other Impressionist painter.
Sisley produced some 900 oil paintings and about 100 pastels and many other drawings.< Less
