The Rubens Ring is a beautiful, heavy and curvaceous ring of solid silver inspired by the full-figured Rubenesque style of 16th Century Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens. Initially carved from wax, it was then molded and cast.
Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) was a Flemish artist and is considered the most influential artist of Flemish Baroque tradition. His paintings depicted women as soft-bodied, passive, and highly sexualized beings, his nudes emphasize the concepts of fertility, desire, physical beauty, temptation, and virtue. Additionally, Rubens was quite fond of painting full-figured women, giving rise to terms like 'Rubensian' or 'Rubenesque'
