Master of Shadows: The Secret Diplomatic Career of the Painter Peter Paul Rubens Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although his popularity is eclipsed by Rembrandt today, Peter Paul Rubens was revered by his contemporaries as the greatest painter of his era, if not of all history.  His undeniable artistic genius, bolstered by a modest disposition and a reputation as a man of tact and discretion, made him a favorite among monarchs and political leaders across Europe—and gave him the perfect cover for the clandestine activities that shaped the landscape of seventeenth-century politics.

 

In Master of Shadows, Mark Lamster brilliantly recreates the culture, religious conflicts, and political intrigues of Rubens’s time, following the painter from Antwerp to London, Madrid, Paris, and Rome and providing an insightful exploration of Rubens’s art as well as the private passions that influenced it.

About the Author

Mark Lamster writes on the arts and culture for many publications, including The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Wall Street Journal. His first book, Spalding’s World Tour, was an Editor’s Choice selection of The New York Times Book Review. He lives in New York City.
