To please Venus, Love shoots an arrow into the heart of Pluto. Madly in love with the young Proserpine, the god of the Underworld then snatches her picking flowers and leads in habite.L'histoire that darkness of Pluto and Proserpina is told in the "Metamorphoses" of Ovid and repeated by Claudian, in the fifth century. This is the story of the latter that was particularly inspired when Rubens was commissioned a large painting depicting the abduction of the young goddess in 1614-1615. This was the first opportunity for the artist to treat the subject. The sketch, which only demonstrates what the finished picture was destroyed in a fire in 1861, translated all the fire of Pluto and the violence of the kidnapping. The galloping horses, the young woman who spills her basket of flowers in the fall and the body thrown from Proserpine insist, not without moralizing referred, the fragility of women.The treatment of "The Rape of Proserpina" proceeds from the nervous and quick key feature of the Rubens painting in his return from Rome. The lines are dynamic and moving bodies. When Philip IV of Spain commissioned him again about it in 1636, Rubens 1614-1615 reuses the composition, but the back and tightens the frame in Figures (PP Rubens, "The Rape of Proserpina ', Madrid, Prado Museum ), giving the illusion that Pluto could be stopped, when all hope is lost in the sketch Petit painted Palais.L'esquisse took an important place in the process of creating the master. It allowed the sponsor to validate its composition projects. Perceived as the raw expression of artistic inspiration, these "models-sketches" rained early collectors, which helped to preserve some.
