Antwerp Rubens house, archive 2009

In 1937 the city of Antwerp acquired the city palace. After restoration, the Rubens House in 1946 could be opened to the public as a museum. Rubens' city dwelling can now be traversed via a designated circuit with a handy written and illustrated guide with a concise description and interpretation of the exhibited works. [3] In the guide, texts from confidential letters by Rubens are returned to his international circle of friends such as Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peresc, William Trumbell and Sir Dudley Carleton.
Behind the house you enter the garden. The garden, which usually refers to the wealth of the owners, is provided by the green service of the province of Antwerp. In front of the Rubens House is the museum shop with various publications about Rubens. The Rubenianum, a documentation center for the study of Rubens and Flemish art, was housed in the Kolveniershof located in the backyard of the Rubens House.

I hope that you enjoy it
