The third section is dedicated to the “fury of the brush”, as his biographers described Rubens’ whirling and full of movement way of painting. The Battle of the Standard and other frantic scenes witness this attitude that, started by Leonardo da Vinci, finds similarities both in Bernini and Lanfranco. Biographers often emphasized Rubens’ creative energy, clearly visible in his vehement and wild paintings. These are typical features of the next-to-come Baroque style.
