They do so either for biographical reasons--because the artist once lived there--or because of the presence of his paintings in their museums collections. But since the spring of 2004, when the major works in the Collections of the Prince of Liechtenstein returned to their traditional home, Vienna has been outshining the other Rubens cities, such as Antwerp and Genoa, both in the sheer number and in the importance of its Rubens paintings.

Because of the variety and high quality of their works by Rubens, the great collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Liechtenstein Museum, and the Gemaldegalerie der Akademie der bildenden Kunste are in a position to provide a comprehensive overview of the artists career.

The Triptych of St. Ildefonso, the Decius Mus cycle, portraits of Rubenss children, and the virtuoso oil sketches for the ceiling paintings of Antwerps Jesuit Church are only a few examples of the artists outstanding masterpieces in Vienna. With its opulent photographs, including numerous details and comparative illustrations, this magnificent book presents more than ninety works by the Flemish master.
