When it comes to Antwerp, one has to mention one person: Rubens, a representative of the early art of Baroque. The former residence of Rubens is located in the centre of Antwerp. He is a very rich artist, and this can be seen from his former residence. As his paintings were welcomed by the royal family, the building was used as a place for the guests to be invited to serve as guests, in addition to being a residence and a studio. There are many paintings of his own in the former residence, including the self-portrait of Rubens. In addition to his former residence, Rubens's paintings can also be found in the main church of the Virgin of Antwerp.
