LXIV: Assorted, cont’d


To those who may be receiving one of these post-notifications for the first time: This is not a blog; it’s actually part of a book, and will make little sense to you without knowledge of what has come before—which you can easily obtain, along with a goodly amount of satirical theatre as matters progress, by simply entering ttgftyri.org into your web browser, opening the menu, and starting at page one.

Following the Lutheran break with Rome in the sixteenth century and the subsequent spread of ‘Protestant-ism’ throughout much of northern Europe, most patrons of the arts in that region rapidly lost interest in the Virgin—whose worship, after all, was one of their main points of discord with Rome—with the result that most northern artists now turned more or less exclusively to painting real-life portraits, still-lifes, and local landscapes.

However, the German-born Flemish painter Peter Paul Reubens—who reportedly once told a patron that his passion for painting came from musing on heavenly matters, rather than on earthly—would have no part in that.

By then a citizen of Antwerp, Belgium—to which his widowed mother had fled with him as a child toward the end of the sixteenth century so that she might raise him in her own, Catholic faith without fear of religious persecution—the Madonna would ultimately appear in thirty-seven of his paintings, or about ten percent of the three hundred ninety-five with which he is credited by modern historians. And since this page will wrap up our tour of Madonna paintings in western Europe prior to 1650 or so, I’ve decided to just run it out to the end with the thirty-five that I could locate.
