    His work is really engrossing, it could take years to see all of the small details in some of his massive works.

    Glad you like the images, his stuff is absolutely worth seeing in person. :)

    I would really like to emphasize the movement portrayed in some of these paintings by Rubens as he defines the form of the body which is being painted.
