Professor John Rupert Martin dies at 83

John Rupert Martin, an emeritus professor of art who was an authority on the painter Peter Paul Rubens and had a large student following during his 40 years of teaching, died Wednesday night in Princeton.

The cause of death was Alzheimer's disease, his family said. He was 83.

"John Martin was a leader in his field of scholarship; a demanding and resourceful scholar who was extraordinarily interested in the world of art and who actively participated in the (Princeton University) Art Museum," said Peter C. Bunnell, a professor of art and archeology.
