Fifteen chapters deal with the most important aspects of his life and work, including the early Altarpieces (1609-1620), his relationship to the Jesuits in Antwerp, his diplomatic duties, themes of war and peace in the paintings, and an evaluation of the artist's personality. With 95 full-color and 181 black-and-white illustrations.
