With this talk, I would love to give an impression of how Rubens looked, analyzed and used external sources, how he was able to transform and appropriate ideas of other artists. His creative power was so overwhelming that he had to add paper, canvas, or panel to his starting compositions. The Viennese Stormy Landscape will exemplify this material aspect of his spirit with Philemon and Baucis, the most dramatic landscape he painted.
