Discovering Antwerp

Discovering Antwerp

One of Europe's largest ports is also a city of art which has preserved a wealth of artistic treasures. During the 16th and 17th centuries, Antwerp attracted merchants from all over Europe and became a centre for creation and new ideas. The photographs in this book are all in full page or panoramic format. They reveal gems from this past; houses-cum-workshops of the Renaissance humanists, baroque splendours, little-known inner courtyards with an atmosphere of yesteryear and Art Nouveau façades whose lavishness echoes the times of Rubens. The texts in French, Dutch, English and German tell of what the image cannot; an eventful and often dramatic history. Perfect for preparing, accompanying or reviving memories of a visit to this beautiful city. Text in English, French, Dutch and German.
