Narrative

Rubens is known to have made only this one etching, which is remarkably accomplished. It reproduces a figure from his oil sketch for a ceiling painting executed in 1620-21. The engraver Lucas Vorsterman (Flemish, 1595-1675) probably retouched Rubens's work with a burin to strengthen its resemblance to an engraving.
