Coin Story

Pieter Paul Rubens (28 June 1577 –30 May 1640), was a Flemish Baroque Painter, and a proponent of an extravagant Baroque style that emphasized movement, colour, and sensuality. He is well-known for his Altarpieces, portraits, landscapes and history paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects. In addition to running a large studio in Antwerp that produced paintings popular with nobility and art collectors throughout Europe, Rubens was a classically educated humanist scholar, art collector, and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV, King of Spain, and Charles I, King of England.
The flight into Egypt is a biblical event described in the Gospel of Matthew (Matthew 2:13-23), in which Joseph fled to Egypt with his wife Mary and infant son Jesus after he learned that King Herod intends to kill the infants of that area.
