Peter Paul Rubens was born into the family of a Calvinist who had to live in exile from Antwerp. On his father's death, Rubenís mother returned to Antwerp in 1587, where he was brought up and educated in the Catholic faith. At the age of fourteen (1591) he entered the household of a Flemish princess as a page, and began to study painting first under Tobias Verhaecht, then under Adam van Noort, and then under Otho Venius. In 1598, he was accepted as master in the Lukas Guild, though continued to work in Veniusís workshop until 1600. Read Peter Paul Rubens's Full Biography
