The Triumph of Rome: The Youthful Emperor Constantine Honouring Rome

c. 1622-1623 Em exibição em Sala 3

The Roman patroness is seated on a throne. At her feet lies a she-wolf suckling twins – the symbol of Rome. The young Emperor Constantine is standing on the right in shining armour.

Rubens made this oil sketch as one of the designs for a series of tapestries about Emperor Constantine, commissioned by the French king Louis XIII. This was the only design not executed in the series.
