The Friends of the Museums donate an artwork by Angel Vergara to the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium
The association Friends of the Museums (Become a Friend) has acquired an installation by the artist Angel Vergara and donated it to the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. This installation is composed of five large-format "painted films", evoking Charles Baudelaire's stay in Brussels in 1864. The famous poet gave five lectures there, in which he defended his conception of modernity through readings of texts, poems and improvisations.
In 2017, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium presented Angel Vergara's work in an exhibition entitled From Scene to Scene. The donation by the Friends of the Museums, which is currently on display in the Patio, enriches the permanent collections of the MRBAB.
