"Peter Paul Rubens (June 28, 1577 - May 30, 1640) was a prolific seventeenth-century Flemish Baroque painter, and a proponent of an exuberant Baroque style that emphasized movement, color, and sensuality. He is well-known for his Counter-Reformation altarpieces, portraits, landscapes, and history paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects.

In addition to running a large studio in Antwerp which produced paintings popular with nobility and art collectors throughout Europe, Rubens was a classically-educated humanist scholar, art collector, and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV, king of Spain, and Charles I, king of England."

I go along with dris651. I saw the artist name and looked at the horse and said to myself..Yep!

Interesting discussion about war horses, Plum and Pat. I forgot about the fact that they wore heavy armor back then. Duh. Now it's just pricey underwear.

Andy, robust used to be one of my favorite words when I was a teenager. It's so nice to hear it coming back.

Thanks, Plum. That certainly makes good sense, considering also the distances they had to carry all that weight. Poor critters.

What little I know of his style, I see that 'Rubenesque' holds true. Even his horses are robust!

It is my understanding that war horses were draft horses. They had to be exceptionally strong to carry the weight of the rider in a suit of armor, with his weapons. No dainty Arabians could possibly handle such a job!

A lot of draft horse in it, Plum?
