The great Flemish painter visited Italy where he became interested in the works of Titian and Veronese. He entered the service of the Duke of Mantua as court painter. In 1605 he was sent on a diplomatic mission to Philip III of Spain. Rubens, with his keen intellect, aristocratic bearing, and linguistic gifts, was highly qualified as a diplomat. He returned to Antwerp and in 1609 was appointed court painter to Archduke Ferdinand. In 1620 Rubens was invited to France by Marie de' Medicis, where he did 21 large subjects for the Luxembourg Palace commemorating her marriage to Henri IV. Other diplomatic missions took him to Philip IV of Spain and th Charles I of England, where he conducted a successful negotiation for peace. Famous paintings by Rubens are in the world's great museums and In major chur>. ches and courts of Europe. His "Raising of the Cross" and "Descent from the Cross" in the cathedral of Antwerp are often considered his masterpieces. Rubens' greatness lies in his organization of forms, orchestration of brilliant colors, and the clear, full, sympathetic rendering of the essential passions common to all men in all times. Delacroix and the Renaissance historian Jacob Burckhardt called him the Homer of painters.
