Don't miss the King Baudouin Foundation's stand at BRAFA, from 19 to 26 June (Brussels Expo, Heysel). Come and immerse yourself in culture, take some time out to enjoy our impressive Belgian heritage, discover our recent acquisitions or attend a fascinating Brafa Art Talk at our stand.
At the beginning of this year, the Belgian Heritage Fund (Erfgoedfonds) purchased ‘The Arrival at St. Anneke, with view of Antwerp’ (‘De aankomst in Sint-Anneke, met zicht op Antwerpen’), a work by Hendrik van Minderhout and Jan van Helmont. The painting is being lent to Museum Vleeshuis. This unique illustration of Antwerp in the seventeenth century is thus returning to its native city.
Discover the world, between magic and realism, of Raoul Servais, the Belgian pioneer of animated film. Until 6 March, the King Baudouin Foundation is holding an exhibition devoted to his work at the BELvue museum. Can’t get to the museum itself? A 360° virtual visit will take you into the artist’s world.
The archives of Arthur Grumiaux, the internationally renowned Belgian violinist, have been given to the King Baudouin Foundation. They have been entrusted to the Belgian Royal Library, where they will be accessible for research and will also be evaluated.
