Summary
"Gender, Politics, and Allegory in the Art of Rubens examines the intertwined relationship between paintings of family and marriage, and of war, peace, and statehood by the Flemish master. Drawing extensively upon recent critical and gender theory, Lisa Rosenthal reshapes our view of Rubens's works and of the interpretive practices through which we engage them. Close readings offer new interpretations of canonical images while bringing into view other powerful works that are less familiar. The focus on gender enables an original way of reading visual allegory, giving it a dynamic multivalence undiscovered by traditional iconographic methods."--BOOK JACKET
