One comment on “Video Pairing: Two Peters, Philips and Paul Rubens

    I wanted to add that we picked these particular pieces because both subjects are women: Amarilli, mia bella (Phillips’ work is based off a popular Italian song by Caccini about love for a woman named Amarilli) and the sitter of Rubens’ work, thought to be Susanna Lunden, born Susanna Fourment, third daughter of Daniel Fourment, an Antwerp tapestry and silk merchant.
