Painting: Rubens was one of the greatest painters of the 17th century. Living and working in Antwerp, he produced a large number of paintings, which are now considered true masterpieces of the world of art. Rubens' self-portrait with his first wife, Isabella, is impressive from both the artistic standpoint, and the psychological standpoint, conveying the great love and respect the two of them shared for one another. This is especially evident through the tender touch of their hands and by the slight tilt of Rubens' head toward his wife. Isabella died of the plague at age 34 and though Rubens was undoubtedly grief-stricken by her loss, he was still able to get married for the second time - just 4 years after Isabella's death, the 53 year old Rubens married a 16 year old daughter of one of his friends. This gorgeous lacquer box will surely become the focal point of any room, while storing everything from keys to business cards, to jewelry, and more! Give this box as a gift and make it a present that will be cherished and remembered for many years to come!
