Rubens - Fall of Phaeton

Identifier

Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

Full of movement, relatively simple in comparison with some of his studies and of course especially in comparison with some finished paintings, this is a wonderful composition.

In some of his large paintings you often feel that a client has come up and said we have 20 feet of wall to fill and he has painted by the yard.  Here is a composition and inspiration.
