Rubenistes. Art History2: Test 2 Flashcards 2022-10-24
Rubenistes were a group of French painters in the 17th and 18th centuries who were followers of the artistic style of Peter Paul Rubens, a Flemish Baroque painter. They were known for their use of vibrant colors, dramatic compositions, and strong brushstrokes, which were all hallmarks of Rubens' style.
One of the key figures among the Rubenistes was Nicolas Poussin, a French painter who was heavily influenced by Rubens' work. Poussin and other Rubenistes sought to emulate Rubens' technique and approach to painting, and their work was often characterized by a rich, expressive use of color and a focus on dramatic storytelling.
The Rubenistes were opposed by a group of painters known as the Poussinistes, who preferred a more classical and academic approach to painting. The Poussinistes believed that paintings should be characterized by clarity, balance, and order, and that the use of color should be subordinated to these principles.
The debate between the Rubenistes and the Poussinistes was a significant one in the art world of the time, and it had implications for the development of French painting in the following centuries. The Rubenistes' emphasis on expression and emotion helped to pave the way for the development of the Rococo style in the 18th century, which was characterized by a playful and decorative approach to art.
