Art salon Museum of Fine Arts
21 June 2011 - 26 August 2018
Due to the renovation of the museum building, the regular collection of the Antwerp Royal Museum of Fine Arts can no longer be visited on site. Many of the artworks will be moved to other locations. The MAS (the Museum by the River), the Rockox House and Gaasbeek Castle will welcome a few paintings from this world renowned collection. Our selection emphasises the nineteenth century, with historical pieces, still life paintings, etc., from artists Alfred Stevens Henri Leys, Henri De Braekeleer, Victor Lagye, Jan Stobbaerts and Gustave De Jonghe. The showpiece is the Fallen Caryatid by Auguste Rodin, a bronze female figure carrying a heavy stone. The works are exhibited in the Fruit Salon, which will be decorated as a nineteenth-century salon for the occasion.
