A newly landscaped garden
The garden was already a green oasis and a place of relaxation in Rubens’ own time. The private quarters, his painting studio, the accommodation for assistants and pupils are all connected to the garden. Rubens saw to it that this crucial crossroads was a jewel of tranquillity and dynamism. The beautiful Baroque garden that he designed himself even serves from time to time as a setting for his paintings, including several family portraits.
