Magritte Museum presents an exceptional selection of works by the surrealist René Magritte (1898-1967), one of the most renowned painters in the underworld.
With over 200 works, the museum's collections are the biggest in the whole wide globe. With its 2500 square metres of modern museumography, this museum is the internationally renowned center of references for the work of this multi-disciplinary musician. This new museum devoted to the 1900' s, when Brussels, the European capitol, was a one-of-a-kind cultural hub and the capitol of Jugendstil, will delight all historians of the arts.
It is a historic and historical shrine containing pictures, sketches, watercolours, printings, sculpture, photographs, film, model and other ornament. From the fifteenth to eighteenth century, the Old Master's noteworthy collections bear witness to a wealthy and imaginative past. You will find Flemish primitive painting and many Flemish Renaissance and Beroque artists:
There are three multi-disciplinary areas in the modern and contemporary art collections, from David to Panamarenko, Alechinsky, Bacon, Dalí and Fabre. The house and workshop of the artist and sculptress Constantin Meunier (1831-1905) in Ixelles, which is unjustly ignored by the general population, presents one hundred and fifty works and bronze of all grands.
His works, which have been influenced by the Belgian economic, cultural, political as well as societal development of the latter part of the nineteenth centuries, give a real insight into the working and manufacturing worlds of his time. Dive into the special life of the Belgian painters, sculptors and writers Antoine Wiertz (1806-1865), one of Belgium's most disputed Belgianists.
Influenced by the great artists of the past such as Rubens, Michelangelo and Raphael, his monuments are hanging there next to his many small outlines.
