Resumen del artículo

Rubens y la artritis reumatoidea

Autores: Alfredo Leiber Vargas Caselles, Diana Carolina Fernández Ávila

The study of baroque paintings, especially those of Flemish origin, makes it possible to show in some of their figures physical signs suggestive of disease. Peter Paul Rubens constitutes one of the maximum representatives of this artistic current. It is believed that Rubens suffered from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and that he portrayed the development and progression of his own disease in several works of art. This article briefly recounts Rubens’ life and describes some of his works focused on the human figure with joint alterations that could correspond to an AR.
