Earlier I posted doors from Rembrandt’s house-turned-museum, in Amsterdam. Today I post doors from “The Rubens House,” a museum in Antwerp, Belgium, that used to be the home of the Flemish Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens. The painter lived and worked in the house from 1610, when he and his wife bought it, until his death in 1640. The building has been almost completely rebuilt and refurbished and displays, among other things, works by Rubens himself as well as other artists, including Anthony Van Dyck and Jacob Jordaens. And I also found some quite beautiful doors there…
Gorgeous. The doors must have been expensive.
Those doors are not “pretty nice” they are downright gorgeous! Wow, that must have been quite a visit.
Yeah, that was definitely an understatement. 🙂 The place was very interesting and they have very beautiful art there.
It’s not just the doors and their hardware, but the framing around the 2nd door. Wow!
I can’t tell from the angle of the photos, but it appears the doors are actually quite short. Is that true?
The doors are really beautiful. As for the height, they are not very tall, but there was some distortion in the photos because I couldn’t take my time doing the shots as people used those doors to move from rooms to room. As I fixed the distortion in PS, they came out looking shorter than they actually are. If they weren’t so pretty and the place so interesting, I might not have used them. 😦
I know the feeling – I have a lot of those photos.
… but short or otherwise, they’re pretty cool doors.
Oh yes, gorgeous doors and I adore the last photo!
