Rubenianum Fund

Rubenianum (BE) A Project of R | KBFUS Funds

In 2013 the Rubenianum celebrates its fiftieth anniversary, an occasion we would like to mark by looking back on the institute's origins and history. Late in 1963, after negotiations on the acquisition of Ludwig Burchard's archive and library had been concluded successfully, the collection arrived by ship in Antwerp. The collection was installed, along with new staff and study room facilities, at the Smidt van Gelder Museum. This was the actual start of the Rubenianum's ambitious mission to create a specialized library and documentation, and to commence its primary scholarly goal: the edition of the Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard.
