Antique French Engraving "The Triumph of Eucharistic Truth over Heresy", by Peter Paul Rubens France circa 1800

A large antique French engraving France circa 1800, "The Triumph of Eucharistic Truth over Heresy", an engraving of the painting by Peter Paul Rubens. This extraordinarily large engraving is a double page rendition and was originally in a folio edition of the works of Rubens published by Nicolaus Leuwens from Antwerp. The original painting in the collection of the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain dating to 1626 and represents the Blood and Body of Christ presented to non believers. The extreme emotional reaction of the heretics is a hallmark of the Baroque period of which Rubens was one of the most famous artists. Curiously this engraving is a mirror image of the original painting. The engraving remains in a nineteenth century frame embellished with gold leaf as well as the original glass with its customary rippled surface. The large scale of this piece conveys the power and majesty of the Baroque era and rewards close examination to see the hand of Rubens. Please enlarge all of the additional photographs provided to see these details in close up definition.
