Rubens painted his wife Helene With her Two Children in 1636. She was only 16 when he married her. This is one of the many illustrations in , which ranges from Giotto to David Hockney. Each gets a brief but lively biography, a thumbnail chronology of his (Frida Kahlo is the only woman) life, and reproductions of a couple of pictures.

William Hogarth is another of the artists included. This is his Shrimp Girl, painted c.1745
