Background A hugely important figure in Baroque painting, Peter Paul Rubens was greatly influenced by his study of Italian Renaissance art as well as the paintings of Italian Baroque artists like Caravaggio. He painted Samson and Delilah shortly after returning from eight years in Italy, and the influence of classicism and Venetian colorito is plain to see. The painting was commissioned by alderman Nicolaas Rockox (1560-1640) for his private residence in the city. Other masterpieces of history painting by Rubens include: Descent from the Cross (Rubens) (1612-14); The Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus (1618); Minerva Protects Pax from Mars (1629-30, National Gallery, London); and Judgement of Paris (1632-5, National Gallery, London).
