Hi everyone!

Helene Fourment (1614-1673), Rubens's young second wife, leaving her palatial home in Antwerp, appears together with her son Frans, who was born in 1633. She is dressed in black, in the opulent Spanish style, and wears a hat in the pom-pom fashion then current in Germany and the Low Countries. The two-horsed carriage is symbolic of conjugal harmony, and the gesture of the right hand suggests modesty. This is probably the last known portrait of Helene by Rubens, done in a sumptuous and lively baroque manner.
This painting, made around 1639, is currently kept at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

Happy Simming!
