Rubenshuis - Rubens House, Antwerp: 52 reviews and 73 photos
Rubenshuis : the House of the master painter Rubens.
The Rubenshuis is a complex situates round a courtyard. In fact it was the house of Rubens but also his studio.
After Rubens?s dead it had many different owners, it was used as a school, later on it became a prison, and finally a staple place that way this once so beautiful building fell in disrepair.
At last, after a lot of problems, the city was able to buy this house, and they could start the restorations.
Thanks to these restorations the Rubenshuis has regained its 17th century grandiosity.
Naturally you can admire here some of the paintings of the Master himself.
