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.
