Most accounts of Rubens represent the artist in his cosmopolitan European aspect, in line with his demonstrable interests and ambitions. Although such interpretations are typically attentive to the ways in which political, socioeconomic, and cultural circumstances and traditions in the Netherlands inflected his persona and work, the interaction between Netherlandish contingencies and translocal ambition has rarely been the sustained object of Rubens studies.
