Musée Fin-de-Siècle Museum

musée fin-de-siècle museum – Every end is a new beginning.

The works reflect the multitude of artistic disciplines between 1868, date of the founding of the Société libre des Beaux-Arts, and 1914.

Famous visual artists like Constantin Meunier, James Ensor, Henri Evenepoel, Fernand Khnopff, Léon Spilliaert and Georges Minne testify to the effervescent activity of this period, reflected also in all other creative fields: literature, opera, music, architecture, photography and poetry (Maurice Maeterlinck, Emile Verhaeren, Octave Maus, Victor Horta, Henry Van de Velde, Maurice Kufferath, Guillaume Lekeu and others). Art Nouveau architecture is evoked by means of a 3D reconstruction of six buildings Art nouveau.

Located at the heart of Brussels, where between 1884 and 1914 the exhibitions of Les XX and La Libre Esthétique made the city one of the artistic capitals of the late nineteenth century, this museum is distinguished by its multidisciplinary nature, through a partnership formed with the Royal Library, the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, the Royal Museums of Art and History, Cinematek, the Bibliotheca Wittockiana, the King Baudouin Foundation and the Brussels Capital Region for housing the Gillion Crowet collection, which is one of the museum's highlights.

About the rotation of artworks

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium possesses a rich collection of works on paper, which mainly consists of drawings, pastels and watercolors from the years 1868-1914. Our structural partner institutions, the print room and the music department of the KBR, the collection of 20th-century art from the RMAH and the archives of la Monnaie, also have a rich and specific collection that is complementary to ours. All these collections demonstrate the importance of the techniques on paper during this period. Because of their sensitivity to light, these works cannot be permanently shown to the public. That is why these works are shown in specific parts of the exhibition route, each time on a specific theme, and the set-up is replaced every six months, in accordance with the strict protection guidelines.
