Summary Peter Paul Rubens. The Life of Achilles highlights just one aspect of Rubens's extensive oeuvre, a series of eight tapestries representing significant episodes from the life of the Greek hero Achilles. The eight oil sketches Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) painted to serve as designs for these remarkable tapestries are among the most beautiful works he produced. The sketches were subsequently worked up by Rubens and his studio and finally used as examples for far larger tapestries. This lavishly illustrated book traces the process from sketch to tapestry and sheds new light on Rubens and his working methods. Book jacket.
