This sketch was created by Van Dyck when he saw Titian’s work on his trip to Genoa. Its an interesting insight into how artists learned from one another and foreshadows the heavy Titian influence that shows up in Van Dyck’s finished pieces from this point on.

Rubens and Brueghel were life-long collaborators and friends, so close that Rubens even became the godfather to Brueghel’s children and the executor of his will after his death. This painting represents the first of such collaborations with Rubens providing the twisting figures and Brueghel painting the lush landscape.

This painting shows Apollo informing Vulcan, blacksmith to the gods, of his wife Venus’ affair with Mars. Note how unlike other artists of his era, Velázquez makes the gods look like they could almost be ordinary people. The only thing that tells you this is a mythological scene is the halo over Apollo’s head.
