During the seventieth century, two of the most famous masters of baroque art - Jan Brueghel the Elder and Peter Paul Rubens - forged a close and fruitful working friendship. While Rubens painted illustrious and prolific figures, mythological themes and portraits, Jan Brueghel provided the images of flowers, animals, and still life objects with the most meticulous and luscious details. Roughly between 1598-1625, for about 27 years, these two heavy-weight painters co-created and collaborated, producing about 25 remarkable paintings together.
