Rockox: Den Gulden Rinck

Nicolaas Rockox, burgomaster of Antwerp and an art lover in every sense, lived in this urban palace with his wife Adriana Perez from 1603 onwards. He was the ‘buitenburgemeester’ (burgomaster for external affairs) at the time, in which capacity he represented the city to higher authorities. Nicolaas received a great many guests here.

Snijders: De Fortuyne

Frans Snijders and his wife Margriete de Vos moved into De Fortuyne in 1622. They previously lived on Korte Gasthuisstraat, where Frans earned a solid reputation as a painter of still lifes, animals and hunting scenes that meant he could now afford a fully-fledged patrician’s house on the residential Keizerstraat.
