In The Art Newspaper, Prof. Theodore Rabb writes on the publication of two new volumes from the fabulous Rubenianum, the research centre in Antwerp established to catalogue Rubens' output. The volumes cover Rubens' collaborations with Jan Brueghel the Elder & Younger, and also the first of three volumes on Rubens' Mythological subjects.

The full details of the volumes are:

Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard Part XXVII (1). Works in Collaboration: Jan Brueghel I & II, by Christine van Mulders

Harvey Miller/Brepols Publishers, 360pp, €150 (hb)

Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard Part XI (1). Mythological Subjects: Achilles to the Graces, by E. McGrath, G. Martin, F. Healy, B. Schepers, C. Van de Velde and K. De Clippel

Harvey Miller/Brepols Publishers, two vols, 944pp, €275 (hb)

Rabb writes of the Rubenianum:

Few would deny that amidst the mass of publications devoted to the history of art during the past century, one undertaking stands out as the most monumental of them all: Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard. With more than 40 books published since the 1970s and another ten or so planned, the enterprise towers over even massive encyclopedias. Nor is the comprehensiveness of the effort inappropriate, for the subject was one of the world’s most prolific artists and also a colossus who has few equals as a creator and shaper of Western art. The Harvey Miller imprint may sponsor multi-volume complete surveys of the work of other figures, such as Cassiano dal Pozzo or Carlo Cesare Malvasia, but none has the standing or the wealth of materials that underlie the treatment of Rubens.
