  • His Most Famous Painting (The Raising of the Cross) - Paul Rubens  By : Annette Labedzki

Peter had adopted the 'Baroque' style of painting, exuberating struggle and drama. He personified allegorical characters and rendered them on canvas, depicting their trauma, emotional struggle, and their sheer bravery, as is best evident in his "The Raising of the Cross" or "The Elevation of the Cross," which depicted the last stages of Jesus Christ during his crucifixion.

  • Henri Rousseau – Genius or talent-less fool?  By : John Burton
