Rubens Documentation on the Move
7 September 2011
At the beginning of September, the KMSKA staff, including the collection research team, moved to temporary accommodation in the Anna Bijns Building of the Flemish public administration near Antwerp Central Railway Station. The museum's Rubens documentation has also moved to this location for the duration of ongoing renovation work to the museum building. The museum's Rubens documentation encompasses all of the research materials, textual sources and photographs that the Rubens project team members have collected in the course of their research activities into the Rubens subcollection. The documents are stored by inventory number of the collection pieces. The Rubens visual database has also been transferred temporarily to the Anna Bijns Building. The database contains hundreds of images produced in the course of the research programme. The museum's Rubens documentation is accessible to fellow researchers by request.
