Restored along original lines, the 1611 building was built as home and studio by celebrated painter Pieter Paul Rubens. Rescued from ruins in 1937, the building is architecturally indulgent with baroque portico, rear facade and formal garden. The furniture dates from Rubens’ era but was not part of the original decor. Ten Rubens canvases are displayed, including one where Eve appears to glance lustfully at Adam's fig-leaf (guide-ref 50).
