English: Tapestries are valuable works of art. Because of their size they fit only in castles and because of the time-consuming technique they are only affordable to the very richest. Now these tapestries are much sought after by museums, however, not easy to purchase, as Friso Lammertse, curator old master paintings at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, explains. Lammertse describes here the acquisition of a tapestry that Rubens designed for a series on the life of Achilles. With the help of tapestry expert Guy Delmarcel, he was able to show this rare item in 2003 in an exhibition on the Achilles series. This is now a showpiece in the permanent collection.
Nederlands: Wandtapijten waren heel kostbare kunstobjecten, die vanwege hun grootte alleen geschikt waren voor kastelen en vanwege de tijdrovende productie alleen betaalbaar voor de allerrijksten. Nu zijn deze tapijten zeer gewilde objecten voor musea, maar niet gemakkelijk te verkrijgen, zoals Friso Lammertse, conservator oude kunst (Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen), in dit filmpje vertelt. Lammertse beschrijft hier de aanwinst van een wandtapijt, die Rubens ontwierp voor een serie over het leven van Achilles. Met behulp van tapijtenexpert Guy Delmarcel werd dit zeldzame object in 2003 verworven voor een tentoonstelling over de Achilles serie. Nu is dit een van de topstukken van de vaste collectie.
