Here he took a stroll around the garden with friends, while having philosophical conversations. Here he also kept his incomparable art collection. This is also where he died in 1640. Rubens reveals his true nature in his home.
In 1610, Rubens purchased a house with land along Wapper in Antwerp. He drew the plans himself for its extension, which fulfilled the wishes of the artist, businessman, family man and art collector that he was.
