Installation of the first large Rubens in the KMSKA  

On 24 September 2022, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA) will open its doors to the public after eleven years of construction and renovation. The installation of the art in the exhibition halls is an important milestone in the run-up to the reopening. The Baptism of Christ by Peter Paul Rubens is the first painting to be mounted, and it is also one of the KMSKA's absolute masterpieces.

Now, everything will be falling into place. We will finally see how the art and the renovated building interact.
