This volume catalogues and discusses all the known representations by Rubens of the Life of Christ after the Passion, and the material is sufficiently varied to convey a brilliant impression of the energy, inventiveness and technical and artistic mastery - the art of Rubens.

This volume catalogues and discusses all the known representations by Rubens of the Life of Christ after the Passion. It includes the little-known group of paintings and drawings of Christ Triumphant over Sin and Death, as well as the various depictions of the Conversion of Saint Paul, the Assumption and Coronation of the Virgin, the Last Judgement, the Fall of the Damned and the Assumption of the Blessed. They range from small panels to the largest works Rubens ever painted and count amongst the most popular and influential of his compostions. In his catalogue Dr. Freedberg presents a considerable amount of new evidence relating to their evolution and patronage, while separate sections are devoted to particularly important and unusual aspects of their iconography.
