I'm just a simple man standing alone with my old brushes, asking God for inspiration.

— Peter Paul Rubens

The most exciting Peter Paul Rubens quotes you will be delighted to read

Every child has the spirit of creation.

The rubbish of life often exterminates the spirit through plague and a souls own wretchedness.


I paint a woman's big rounded buttocks so that I want to reach out and stroke the dimpled flesh.


My talent is such that no undertaking, however vast in size... has ever surpassed my courage.


My passion comes from the heavens, not from earthly musings


Painting a young maiden is similar to cavorting with great abandon. It is the finest refreshment.


White is poison to a picture: use it only in highlights.
