The Rubens House in one minute

"Welcome to my house!" Peter Paul Rubens, brilliant and versatile artist, invites you to his palazetto in the centre of Antwerp. The master lived here with his family for years and painted with his colleagues and assistants in a studio that he designed himself. He created many of his paintings in this house. His work has inspired artists and art aficionados for over four hundred years. Here he received important patrons and cherished his unique art collection. This unique museum, the master's house, is the only place in the world where Rubens's presence is so tangible. And you are here as his guest. Welcome!
