seen on the streets of Antwerp
Recently I visited Antwerp in Belgium. Although I’m usually not into sightseeing, I went to see the rather touristy Rubens house, where the artist lived from 1610 until his death in 1640. Peter Paul Rubens was one of the few painters to become famous and therefore wealthy during lifetime. Consequently his home in Antwerp appears like a little palace. Have a look at my pictures and afterwards go and visit the house yourself.
