Rubens had the habit of reworking paintings which his assistants painted after his own specifications. A lesser-known fact is that he also took great pleasure in retouching the paintings and drawings of other, usually older masters.
Rubens will be your host this year for the cultural city festival ‘Antwerp Baroque 2018: Rubens Inspires’. You can look forward to a bold and overflowing programme of Baroque, old and new. The Rubens House is the starting point for the celebrations.
