PORTRAIT of HÉLÈNE FOURMENT – $8,000

We were recently fortunate enough to handle the sale of this fabulous portrait of Peter Paul Rubens’ wife, Helene Fourment.  This Portrait of Hélène Fourment, a rendition of the original by Rubens, was believed to have been executed by the studio of Rubens, c. late 17th/early 18th century.  The unidentified artist exhibited a definite mastery of the medium, as well as the influence of Rubens.  Read more about Helene Fourment here.
