Modernité/Moderniteit à la belge
The exhibition "Modernity a la belge" retraces Belgian art over more than a century through paintings, drawings and sculptures from the modern art collection of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium as well as some invited major art works. You will be fascinated to see how Marcel Broodthaers used eggshells and shells for artworks, you will understand why Constantin Meunier from Etterbeek focussed on the dark side of life of the working class, you will find a wonderful still life of James Ensor, and of course many other artists like Magritte, Rik Wouters and Luc Tuymans who lives in Antwerp. You will certainly also be impressed by different paintings of Brusselmans.
