Steeped in history, this Belgian city was regarded as a center of European culture and
commerce in the 16th century and has since cultivated influential scenes within fine art,
architecture and fashion. The wandering traveller will find richness in the Antwerp School
paintings of Pieter Paul Rubens, contrast in Flemish Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance
buildings, and cool restraint in Modernist interiors like the Huis Guiette. The ensuing
Antwerp colour palette reflects the city’s unique cool.
