  The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Special Exhibitions - Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640): The Drawings
A good example of a compositional drawing from the 1620s is the study for The Majority of Louis XIII (Louvre, Paris), one of the rare works on paper in preparation for the Medici cycle.
Since from the 1620s on Rubens drew portraits mainly in chalk, a comparison of one of his early portrayals in chalk with a later portrait drawing may help us discern something of the artist's development in this genre.

Then he shared a studio with Rembrandt in Leiden in the later 1620s: many works of this period show one influencing the other.
Lievens went to England, probably in 1632 after Rembrandt moved to Amsterdam, but he was in Antwerp by 1635, where he was influenced by the courtly style of Van Dyck.
In this painting he is also wearing clothes that were fashionable in the 1620s: a fl doublet, velvet britches with a long fl coat over the top, a hanging pleated ruff and a broad-rimmed felt hat.

 Are British scholars erasing two heroic earls from Jacobean history?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Circumstantial evidence strongly suggests that the revival of the Oxfordian challenge in the 1980s has caused these British historians to make a deliberate effort in the 1990s to obscure these basic facts, and even to sanitize their more recent works to avoid any collateral damage to the Shakespeare industry.
So Henry de Vere and Southampton slipped through the cracks and it was not until about 1970 when under the leadership of Conrad Russell, British historians began to reconstruct in more detail the court politics, especially the struggle of the Herbert-de Vere-Southampton faction against the King and Buckingham.
The table below lists these 11 biographies and notes how they have covered the Marriage Crisis years of the early 1620s and whether they mention the roles of the 3rd Earl of Southampton and/or the 18th Earl of Oxford in their discussion of the 1620s.

 William R. Blue: Spanish Comedy and Historical Contexts in the 1620s
In this study William Blue reminds us of the importance of the historical context in understanding seventeenth-century Spanish plays.
The author covers twenty Spanish plays of the 1620s, a pivotal decade that saw a radical change in both the style and substance of government accompanied by new national and international orientations, changes in economic policies, demographic shifts, and a certain social mobility.
By focusing precisely on the "local details" that a contemporary audience would have immediately grasped, Blue shows what happens for today's audience if those details are seen as central rather than incidental to understanding the plays.
