A Daytrip to Antwerp

This morning the sun was shining for a change, so I decided to go to Antwerp, to visit a few more museums and churches. When I got closer I realised that Antwerp is grey and no sunshine. Hmm, should maybe have stayed in Brussels. However, later in the day the sun came out. Here some photos from the day.

From a private collector's museum Mayer van den Bergh. Lovely paintings and other collections. There were even some paintings from Brueghel (older and younger).

The Library

The wall paper of the library. Fantastic!


Illustrations

The Salon and Office 

Some city pictures.




And a lovely triptych from the Cathedral of Our Lady. There are also some lovely paintings by Rubens.

The wooden carvings are exquisite!
