Image of New pictures at the Rubenshuis

Picture: Rubenshuis

Good news from one of my favourite museums, the Rubenshuis in Antwerp; they've acquired one of Van Dyck's Apostle paintings (St Matthew, above), and have on loan from Ontario Rubens' extraordinary Massacre of the Innocents. The latter picture is the most expensive Rubens ever sold - and I imagine his ghost will be delighted to see it back in the studio where he painted it, some 400 years ago. Worth getting on a plane for, anyway.
