Rubens was known for painting religious narratives and mythological stories. When representing these anecdotes, the artist would often recur to the forms of the human body to represent the drama and the tragedy of the scenes. For that reason, he has been known as one of the Baroque artists that best created this melodramatic atmosphere when drawing the human shape.
Victory is right in the middle of the horizontal panel. He occupies most of the height of the layout and wears a shiny classical plated armor. There are beautiful details engraved in gold and silver on his armor, and a glorious red cape that crosses his chest and runs down his back, folded over his right legal. He looks to his upper left-hand side. His majestic face is adorned by his beautiful brown curly hair and beard. He holds a round shield made of the same material and colors as his armor. The shield also has the same engravings. On his right hand, he holds a bloody sword.
The goddess of Victory is on the left side of the painting. There is a shiny piece of fabric covering her body from the waist down showing half of her pale, muscular body. She uses her right hand to place a crown made of oak leaves of the hero’s head, and her stretched arm shows a golden bracelet. She has a golden hair pulled up in a knot with a beautiful braid around it. Part of her hair falls down her shoulder, showing its waves. Her wings are spread back, and it’s possible to see the detailed and textured feathers.
To the right-hand side of the viewer, it’s possible to see two figures: above, one is holding a bunch of arrows and offers them to the hero. Below, the symbol of Barbarism tied up and subdued. His hands are tied to his back, and his head gently rests on the hero’s left leg. His massive body is partially covered by a vibrant blue piece of fabric.
All of these figures stand over two bodies that represent Rebellion and Discord. Rebellion’s body, with the torch, is spread all across the bottom of the picture. It’s possible to observe that his skin has lost its color, and his grayish body is covered by a little piece of white cloth. Underneath the hero’s legs, only the head of Discord sticks out, as snakes emerge from his hair. This vivid picture is currently hosted at an art gallery called Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, in Germany.
