瑪莉的教育﹝The Education of Marie﹞
1622 ~ 1625 年
油彩‧畫布，394 x 295 公分
《瑪莉的教育》這幅畫的魅力，在於魯本斯對神祕和幻影能轉換成令人感動的視覺效果。為了凸顯女王瑪莉．麥第奇﹝Marie de Medici﹞ 正在學習的題材，魯本斯故意將畫面中幾個神話人物的比例，畫的比位於中央的女王要大得多，而藍紫色的背景則畫得有些模糊。
當我們仔細觀賞這幅畫作時，就彷彿置身於畫中一樣。人物的姿態包括最左邊的光明之神阿波羅﹝Apollo﹞、戴頭盔的正義之神雅典娜﹝Athena﹞和上方的商業之神赫姆斯﹝Hermes﹞均極其勻稱自然，使這幅畫平添了許多光彩並賦與豐富的內涵。祂們教導瑪莉關於音樂、閱讀與辯論的藝術。商業之神的形象，魯本斯乃取材於卡拉瓦喬《七善事》﹝The Seven Acts of Mercy﹞中的天使造型，他與紅色幃幔相連，而位於瑪莉身後的則是「優美」三女神﹝Three Graces﹞，她們提供美的意義。

Have you ever wanted to be The Girl With The Pearl Earring?
Well thanks to a Canadian artist, many people were able to follow in Scarlett Johansson's footsteps and remake the classic painting by 17th Century Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer.
Jeff Hamada, an artist from Vancouver, has been running a competition named Remake on his website 'Booooooom'.
Likeness: A woman, left, recreates Johannes Vermeer's classic the Girl With A Pearl Earring. It is an entry into Jeff Hamada's competition which allows classic paintings to be recreating by people
Similar: On the left is a new take of Portrait Of A Man by Jan van Eyck, right
It allows classic paintings to be skillfully created by every day people.
Each recreation is a real life re-staging of a scene captured in paint - but often with a modern twist involved to reflect the changing world.
Mr Hamada said: 'The idea of the project is to remake a famous work of art using photography.
'I thought I would run a competition to see what the public could come up with.
New and old: A girl has entered artist Jeff Hamada's competition by creating a modern remake of the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci
Disturbing: Edvard Munch's classic The Scream, right, is given a new look in this image on the left
'Now I don't have £10,000 to put up as prize money but I was able to get a copy of the entire Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection for the winner.'
Entrants were asked to re-stage a famous painting and submit their work to his website - with the winner gaining a prize.
In one amazing recreation, The Whistler's Mother is a stunning replica of the original artwork by James McNeill Whistler.
Another incredible creation showed a Van Gogh lookalike in matching green blazer and buttoned up shirt, with slicked back ginger hair - perfectly mimicking the famous artist.

Millet had originally created this work for an American, Thomas Gold Appleton, who failed to take possession of the piece. Millet later changed the painting to include a steeple in the background and change the name from Prayer for the Potato Crop to The Angelus. The painting changed hands many times, ending with a bidding war between France and America. The painting has also been a source of speculation, due to Salvador Dali’s insistence that the figures are actually praying over their deceased child. Dali was so insistent that the painting was eventually x-rayed, revealing a shape that looked like a small coffin, indicating that Dali may have been right, and that Millet may have originally created the painting with the couple mourning over their small child’s coffin. classicalpainting.org

By far the most recognizable of Millet’s works, The Gleaners depicts a trio of women gleaning the last bits of wheat from a field. Millet found the theme of women gleaning the last bits of wheat an eternal one, linked to stories of the Old Testament. The painting was received by the public with open scorn. It presented what at the time were the lowest ranks of society, taking advantage of the age-old right to remove the last bits of grain left over from wheat harvest, in a sympathetic light. During his lifetime, this painting garnered naught but notoriety from a French upper-class that feared glorifying the lower ranks of society, and it was not until after the artist’s death that it became more popular.
