More about the garden

Did Rubens feel the same sense of peace and tranquillity as visitors do today? Did he yearn for silence, as many of us do today in our busy, digital world? Reference works about this imposing garden lead us to assume that it certainly was the green heart of the complex and that it was seeded, enchanting and full of greenery. The colour advice by Dries Van Noten also adds colour to the garden, so as to create an oasis in the middle of the city.
