Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten

Profile

Since 1810 the Koninklijk Museum has housed an outstanding collection of paintings, sculptures and drawings from the fourteenth to the twentieth centuries. This collection is representative of the artistic production and the taste of art enthusiasts in Antwerp, Belgium and the Northern and Southern Netherlands since the fifteenth century. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koninklijk_Museum_voor_Schone_Kunsten [Jul 2006]

The Royal Museum of Fine Arts, built in 1894, is the most prominent building. It is located at the central square, the Leopold De Wael square. The Hippodrome, a large theater opposite the museum and the south station, built around 1900 at the end of the Boulevard were the other landmarks in the South. --http://www.aviewoncities.com/antwerp/zuid.htm [Jul 2004]

From the Director

Welcome to the website of the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten!

Ensor and the moderns is the title given to the new presentation of the twentieth-century art collection.

Is the work of Massijs, Rubens, Ensor and Wouters really worthwhile? That you can establish for yourself in the permanent presentation of the Koninklijk Museumís collection.

Would you like to compare Van der Weyden and Memling with Fouquet and da Messina, Rubens with his predecessors, contemporaries and imitators, Van Dyck with Frans Hals, or Modigliani with Delvaux?

The imposing museum building, a romantic temple of art, was built in the period 1884-1890. The Royal Museum is a scientific institution of the Flemish Community.
