The MAS hostst the Rubens House

Two of the city's museums will be teaming up for the first retrospective exhibition about the work of Michaelina Wautier (1614–1689), in a unique partnership between the Rubens House and the MAS. The exhibition is a world premiere in demonstrating the exceptional talent of an artist who became popular in a period when female artists were very rare. Her work is so varied and unique that it defies all imagination when it comes to art history.
