Labels and date

War and Victory

Rubens’ design shows Victory with a laurel
wreath and Mars, the god of war. It celebrates
the journey to Brussels of the new governor
of the Spanish Netherlands, following the Battle
of Nordlingen. Nordlingen was celebrated as
a decisive victory for Catholic Imperial forces,
although in reality the battle widened the
conflict by drawing France into the Thirty
Years War.

Southern Netherlands, now Belgium (Antwerp)
