The Rubenianum archives

The Rubenianum’s institutional archives document the history of the Rubenianum and the professional activities of its academic staff.

Historical background, content and structure

Although the institutional archives of the Rubenianum – a municipal organization – are part of the municipal archives, some parts are kept within the Rubenianum itself. These archives include the notes, correspondence and typescripts of the first curator, Frans Baudouin (1920-2005), relating to exhibitions, publications and research projects.
