The Rubenianum is dedicated to the assembling, development and dissemination of information concerning the visual arts in the Netherlands in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, with particular concentration on the work of Pieter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck and Jacob Jordaens. It is open to the public and offers guidance both to the general visitor as the specialist researcher. The Rubenianum houses the archive of Ludwig Burchard, which forms the basis for the Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard.
The Rubenianum is founder and supporter of the ‘Center for the Flemish art of the 16th and 17th centuries‘.
