Rubens Gallery

This large gallery, devoted to Flemish 17th-century art, is divided into three sections: works by Breughel the Younger evoke the early years of the century, following on from his father Jan Breughel the Elder. There is also an important group of works by Rubens and other artists of the northern European Baroque (Daniel Seghers, Cornelis De Heem, Huysmans...). A series of nine paintings by David Teniers evokes the northern school's predilection for so-called genre scenes, depicting aspects of everyday life.
