Before it was destroyed the city was mostly referred to a “utopia”.
In 366 CE, a “violent and destructive earthquake”(Document F) followed by a tsunami hit the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, leaving Rome shocked and frightened. “Fifty thousand persons had lost their lives in the city of Alexandria alone” according to Edward Gibbon’s The History of the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. The vast loss of lives meant that Rome had fewer defenders for their empire. A concatenation of plagues struck the Rome’s Empire and reduced the population to less than half of what it once was.“A series of plagues...swept over the empire which brought diseases.....

Researchers prior in the Northern Tune (960-1126) suspected that painting as a craftsmanship needed to transcend simply the "presence of structures" with a specific end goal to express the originations and development of the craftsman. This turned into the substructure of the kineticism kenned as literati (philomath)
He combined all these elements with his own characteristics and developed to form his own style. In general, Rubens's appropriate handling of sketches relationship, and the manner he adopted of light and shade give a strong sense of volume in his landscape paintings; brilliant colors, flow composition and full structure make his landscape paintings full of magical visual effects; arc and swirling "Baroque" Rhythm which all-encompassing display eternal change.
