«Portrait of Jan Gaspar Gevartius» (Peter Paul Rubens, c. 1628, Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp).

This is a portrait of Rubens' friend Jan Gaspar Gevaerts (1593—1666). He was a reputable philologist, Neo-Latin poet and historiographer. Characteristically for his intellectual circles he had his name Latinized to Gevartius. Rubens here intends to represent his friend's humanist attitude: he is sitting at his desk, with a bust of the Roman Emperor and philosopher Marcus Aurelius, on whom he wrote an unpublished commentary.


Artists: Rubens Peter Paul

Plots: Marcus Aurelius
