"The Four Philosophers" :: Peter Rubens

"The Four Philosophers" :: Peter Rubens - men's portraits
Previous photo
 

Peter Rubens "The Four Philosophers"  The picture of this gifted and talented artist has a special meaning and value for Rubens himself. "Justus Lipsius and his disciples" is another name for this painting, and the peculiarity is that the artist painted the most native people in the picture - his brother, his close friend and man, whose role in their life became decisive - the teacher Justus Lipsius.  The painting depicts the marble sculpture of the Roman philosopher Seneca, under his head is a great teacher with his beloved disciples. The artist on this canvas depicted himself, but he is a bit distant from the participants in the philosophical discussions. The artist is depicted in the face of an ordinary listener, ready to indulge in these clever and philosophical speeches for a long time. The picture is made in a rich color palette and even there is luxury and some pomposity. Luxury is in such details as a column made of marble, a curtain of luxurious and bright drapes. You can observe in the picture, as next to the bust of the Roman artist is a transparent vase with beautiful and bright tulips.  The picture is interesting because not only the teacher appears before us as a bright personality, but also the students have their own individuality and characteristic features and differences. Considering the picture, you can see that the artist puts a relative relationship and friendship in the first place, because he portrayed people dear to the heart in the foreground, and he disappeared from them.  In general, the emotions that the picture transmits immerse the observer in the inner world of the participants in the philosophical conversation.
