Musée Royaux des Beaux-Arts

The Museum of Fine Arts is Brussels main museum, divided into three sections: ancient art, modern art and Magritte Museum.

The Museum of Ancient Art (Musée d’Art Ancien), is the biggest of the three, with art works dating from the XV up to the XVIII century. It is mainly famous for the collection of Flemish art by artists the likes of Rubens and Van Dyck. Various colours lead the visitor through the gallery: the blue path on the first floor covers works between the XV and XVI century, whereas the brown path includes works of the XVII and XVIII century.

Not to miss some paintings like the Assumption of the Virgin Mary by Pieter Paul Rubens dated 1610, and the Annunciation, by the Master of Flémalle, and many others like Census at Bethlehem by Pieter Bruegel, Madonna with S. Anna and Virgin and Child with St. Anne and a Franciscan Donor by Hugo van der Goes.

Museum of Modern Art and Museum Magritte: situated on three different floors and eight underground levels, the exhibition celebrates temporary works and over 200 works by the surrealist artist René Magritte, among which stands out the famous “The Domain of Arnheim” representing an eagle-mountain surmounting a small nest. Not to be missed the paintings “Lady in Blue in front of a Mirror” by Rik Wouters, the Composition by Pierre Louis Flouquet (a mix of Cubism and Futurism), and the painting Draped Seated Woman by the English sculptor Henry Moore.
