If you're into old masters' techniques of painting and have a tendency to develop your sketching skills and human anatomy understanding, I find this book really helpful. I recommend that you use it as a copy/sketch reference - it helps you examine Rubens' techniques and his way of understanding human anatomy. If you're a professional classical artist, this books is very great. Rubens is my favourite reference of studying old masters techniques and one of the most productive artist of his time so you'll find many works to study, understand, copy and then develop your artistic techniques.
