Pieter Paul Rubens was a Baroque Flemish painterwho created many oil paintings, including portraits, landscapes, mythologicaland historical paintings, as well as many printmaking based on his manuscript.The total number of his printmaking is about 2,200, of which he was directlyinvolved in about 100. In Europe, the trend of reproducing the works of theRenaissance masterpiece and ancient Roman sculptures in print form began in the 16thcentury.At the same time, artists wereeager to express their ideas through different media other than oil painting,so the printmaking based on manuscript became popular. It was in the early 1630s that Rubensturned his attention to woodblock printing. Because of the great difficulty inreproducing prints exactly as they appear in the manuscript, Rubens supervisedthe engravers who reproduced his paintings, and searching for talentedengravers throughout his career. The printmaking of "The Garden ofLove" was a collaboration with the Flemish Baroque engraver ChristoffelJegher（Rubens was very strict about printmaking, andthere was an anecdote about an assassination attempt on Rubens by the engraverForstermann in 1623）.The composition of the printmaking "TheGarden of Love" is divided into left and right two parts, with the figurespushed to the foreground and angels flying around them. If we look at thedetails of the painting, first we can see on the left part `s left side, thereis a couple walking towards the center of the garden, pushed by cubit, the godof love. The man is considered to be the author Rubens, and the young woman ishis second wife, Helena Fourment. From the affectionate expression on Rubens'face, we can see that he cares for his wife very much. With his right hand onher arm and his left hand lightly supporting her back. They walk slowly andcarefully, looks like he tries to not to let her fall. Hélène's gaze is lightly downward, showing the reserve and shyness thata young girl has（This expression ismore obvious in the oil painting）.
The angel holding a crown of flowers and a torch on the top of the painting is the God of Marriage.
