Perfect unity. I hope Adam and Eva will return to paradise. Their sins are not forgiven yet, we are all still here, the far away grand children of Adam and Eva. When God asked what happened, Adam blamed Eve and basically blamed God, since He had given her to him. Adam was not moved by this desire for knowledge, but simply by greed: he ate it because he heard Eve say it tasted good. Then Eve blamed the serpent. Adam and Eve chose the way that leads to death for themselves and all their children.
But thankfully God had a plan to turn that around. Jesus Christ was willing to pay the death penalty for us. Although hope, believe and love are engraved in my heart I have become to know that this world is one dimensional , only our Souls but not our Bodies can go to Heaven.
Our bodies can be destroyed like bricks of stone and turn into dust, but right now use it as His Temple to live the message. Treasure the man or woman who God gave to you, or at least be that human He wants you to be. Your soulmate is not someone who comes into your life peacefully. It is someone who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, someone who marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being everyone has idealized, but an ordinary person, who manages to revolutionize your world in a second.
When Someone marks your life. You see them doing dishes, first time your eyes see. Before I was not a sinner, but after I want to be his saint and daily life. When I was a child, I saw a film about this painter. At the end, he was old and had no money. When a friend gave him some money to eat, he preferred to buy a little paint before eating.
A very interesting film in black and white. For my, they are very similar. Recibir nuevas entradas por email. Ir al contenido. Me gusta: Me gusta Cargando Guarda el enlace permanente.

The World of Rubens:
I am really glad to know that you liked the post. Why did the serpent tempt Eve and not Adam? Why did the serpent deceive them? In Cologne he entered into an adulterous relationship with the wife of William the Silent, Prince of Orange, as a result of which he was thrown into prison. Released after 2 years owing to the devoted and untiring efforts of his wife, Maria Pypelinckx, Jan Rubens was permitted to take up residence at Siegen in Westphalia. It was there that their second son, Peter Paul, was born on June 28, The family, which had now become Catholic, lived for some years in Cologne until Jan Rubens died in , at which time his widow returned to Antwerp, bringing her three children with her.
After a period of schooling which included instruction in Latin and Greek, the young Rubens became a page to a noblewoman, Marguerite de Ligne, Countess of Lalaing. This early experience of court life, though he was glad to be released from it, was undoubtedly useful to the future artist, much of whose time was to be passed in aristocratic and royal circles.
Returning to his home in Antwerp, he now decided to follow the profession of painter. Luke, the painters' guild. In Rubens set out on a journey to Italy, where within a short time he entered the service of Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, whose palace housed a notable art collection. Since Rubens was not expected to remain always at the ducal court in Mantua, he found time to visit other cities in Italy, especially Rome, Florence, and Genoa.
In Rome, Rubens completed his education as an artist, studying with unfailing enthusiasm the sculptures of antiquity and the paintings of the High Renaissance, especially those of Raphael and Michelangelo. During his first sojourn in the papal city he painted three altarpieces for the Church of Sta Croce in Gerusalemme now in the Hospital at Grasse.
In Duke Vincenzo sent Rubens on a diplomatic mission to Spain; here he made the impressive equestrian portrait of the Duke of Lerma and saw for the first time the Spanish royal collection, with its wealth of paintings by Titian. Late in Rubens was again in Rome; he now contrived to remain there for almost 3 years. During this time he was commissioned to decorate the high altar of S.
Maria in Vallicella—an extraordinary honor for a foreigner.
His first solution, an altarpiece showing the Madonna and Child with St. Gregory and other saints now in the Museum at Grenoble , did not make a good impression owing to unfavorable lighting conditions in the church, and he obligingly replaced it by a set of three pictures painted on slate. In October , before this work had been unveiled, there came word that Rubens's mother was seriously ill, and the artist left at once for Antwerp. Though he did not know it at the time, he was never to see Italy again.
Rubens arrived at his home to learn that his mother had died before he left Rome. Although it was surely his intention to return to Italy, he soon found reasons for remaining in Antwerp. The Archduke Albert and his consort, Isabella, the sovereigns of the Spanish Netherlands, appointed him court painter with special privileges.
The humanistic atmosphere of Antwerp that appealed so strongly to Rubens is epitomized in the so-called Four Philosophers. In reality this is a commemorative picture representing the late Justus Lipsius, the eminent classical scholar, with two of his pupils, one of whom is Rubens's brother Philip also recently deceased ; the artist himself stands a little to one side, an onlooker rather than a participant in the symposium. The first big project to be undertaken after Rubens's return from Italy was the Raising of the Cross, a triptych for the church of St.
Walburga now in the Cathedral of Antwerp. With this bold and intensely dramatic work Rubens at once established himself as the leading master of the city. It was followed by another triptych, equally large and no less successful, the Descent from the Cross in the Cathedral. Rubens's baroque imagination found new outlets in subjects chosen from both the sacred and profane worlds: in the Great Last Judgment he conjured up an apocalyptic vision of the torments of the damned; the same tempestuous energy is encountered in the artist's hunting pieces, with their ferocious combats of men and wild beasts.
Rubens's workshop was now in full operation, and he was able, with the aid of his pupils and assistants, to achieve an astonishing output of pictures. Nevertheless it must not be concluded that the master took no responsibility for his paintings but was simply content to let them be carried out by his studio.

The principal works exhibit no falling off in quality. Indeed the masterpieces crowd so closely upon one another at this time that it is difficult to select a few representative examples.
Of the mythologies the Rape of the Daughters of Leucippusis one of the most dazzling. Among the finest of the ecclesiastical works are the two altarpieces glorifying the first saints of the Jesuit order, the Miracles of St.

Ignatius of Loyola and the Miracles of St. Francis Xavier, which fairly overwhelm the observer by their huge scale, richness of color, and depth of feeling. In Rubens was commissioned to execute a series of 39 ceiling paintings for the Jesuit church in Antwerp. It was the largest decorative cycle that the artist had yet undertaken, and as such it called into play all his powers of invention and organization. The entire complex of ceiling paintings was destroyed by fire in The Jesuit cycle was followed by an even larger commission from France.
The first of these projects, the incomparable series of 21 large canvases illustrating the life of Marie now in the Louvre, Paris , was finished in The subject matter was decidedly unpromising, but Rubens, undaunted as always, succeeded in transforming the dreary history of the Queen into one of the most brilliant and most spectacular of all baroque decorative programs.
Work on the second cycle, which was to deal with the life of Marie's late husband, King Henry IV, was repeatedly delayed, and Rubens at length gave up the project in disgust.

There were other decorative schemes to occupy Rubens's attention during this period. Despite his being involved in these and other great undertakings, Rubens found time to paint important altarpieces for churches in Antwerp: the Adoration of the Magi now in the Antwerp Museum was made for St. Michael's Abbey in ; the Assumption of the Virgin for the high altar of the Cathedral in ; and—perhaps the most beautiful of all—the Madonna and Saints sometimes called the Mystic Marriage of St.

Catherine for the church of the Augustinians in Some of his most memorable portraits also belong to these years. It shows a strong and handsome face, with bold moustaches and curling hair and beard; the broadbrimmed hat not only lends animation by its sweeping oval shape but serves also to conceal the artist's baldness about which he seems to have been rather sensitive.
Rubens's diplomatic activity, which had begun some time earlier, reached a peak in the years , when he was instrumental in bringing about peace between England and Spain. As the agent of the Infanta, he went first to Spain, where in addition to carrying out his political duties he found a new and enthusiastic art patron in King Philip IV and renewed his acquaintance with the works of Titian in the royal collection.
His mission to England was equally successful. Charles I knighted the artist-diplomat, and the University of Cambridge awarded him an honorary master of arts degree. Rubens returned to Antwerp in March Isabella Brant, Rubens's first wife, had died in
