Titian and Rubens: Power, Politics, and Style

Aiming to bring an understanding of the contexts of treasures of the past closer to contemporary concerns, three experts discuss Titian's Europa, Rubens's Thomas Howard, Earl of Arundel, Rubens's Rape of Europa from the Prado Museum, and Titian's Francesco Maria della Rovere from the Uffizi.

By exploring the dynamic relationship between art and power, as well as how both artists manipulated their style to express the political power of their clients—no less a relevant issue today—an important era comes to life for today's readers.
