photoblog image Courtyard of Rubens Huis

Courtyard of Rubens Huis

Wapper 9 - 11, 2000 Antwerpen. This is the address of the former residence of Peter Paul Rubens. It is a side street off the Meir avenue in Antwerp. Rubens bought an existing 16th century house and lived here till his death. He had it embellished and turned it into an elegant Renaissance-Baroque residence, with a beautiful restyled garden and a courtyard. Almost all of his works were created in the Rubens House or Rubenshuis. 


Though most of them today reside in major museums across the whole world, there is still an impressive collection well worth a visit. Additionally, there are works of art from other masters and furniture from the 17th century as well as paintings from his pupil, Anthony Van Dyck. Furthermore, it gives an idea of how Rubens lived and worked. His house was not only a studio, it was also a meeting place for his rich and famous clients.

A beautiful place made like a dream with the processing. Well captured!
Ayush Basu: thanks Frida, the processing helped bring out the door to the left which otherwise had been left in the dark because of the shadows
Beautiful Gothic structure nicely captured,complimenting green leaves. Interesting windows, small sculpture front of the house added the beauty more. Nice shot.Refreshed my memory also when we visited here.
