Product Description

Peter Paul Rubens ( PE ter PAWL ROO bunz) was born in Germany in 1577. His father died when Peter was 10 years old. His mother returned to Antwerp, their home town with the three children.

When his older sister was ready to marry, their mother spent money to provide a dowry for his sister. It was a custom for the bride to bring money to her husband when they married. The family didn't have much money left and Peter Paul, now 13 years old, and his brother had to go to work. His mother placed him as a page, a boy servant, in the home of a countess.

He stayed there for awhile, but he wanted to be a painter, so he was sent as an apprentice to a family member who was an artist.

Then he went on to work with other artists. He began to teach art at the age of twenty-one. He married a young woman who was eighteen years old,about half his age. Her name was Isabella.

The featured work on this page is a portrait he painted of the two of them shortly after their marriage. They had three children and she died after 17 years of marriage.
