St Sebastian (Rubens)
ST SEBASTIAN is a painting of c. 1614 by Peter Paul Rubens , showing the Christian Saint Sebastian . It dates to the early years of Rubens' stay in Rome - its sinuous line and defined figures are thought to be the result of his studies of Michelangelo and of Flemish Mannerism . It was bought by the Borghese directly from cardinal Neri Corsini in Brussels . It is now in the Borghese collection . In 1618, Rubens wrote the English Sir Dudley Carlton a letter describing a collection of his own paintings he had at his home he wished to trade, including a painting of a naked St. Sebastian. It is more than likely not that this is that painting. REFERENCES * ^ Marx, Daniel; Krén, Emil. "St. Sebastian by RUBENS, Peter Paul". Web Gallery of Art. Web Gallery of Art
