An exceptional drawing by Félicien Rops, the second version of La Dame au Pantin, is joining the permanent collection of the Namur museum dedicated to the artist and his work, thanks to the Charles Vreeken Fund.

The descendants of Albert Dupuis, composer and conductor of the Verviers Orchestra, have donated his archive to the King Baudouin Foundation. The collection will be kept in the Music Department of the Royal Library of Belgium, which will be responsible for making an inventory of the archive, studying it and making it accessible to the public.

The Eliane Vercaempt Fund has acquired Théâtre, a masterpiece by Maurice Maeterlinck and Léon Spilliaert. The three volumes of this work are now part of our public heritage, thanks to a rescue operation conducted in close cooperation with the RMFAB and the Flemish Community.

Twenty-six Inuit stone sculptures from the Baker Lake region in Canada can now be admired at the Centre d’Interprétation de la Pierre in Sprimont. This formerly private collection of sculptures was donated to the King Baudouin Foundation to ensure their safeguard for future generations.


At BRAFA the King Baudouin Foundation bought a silver coat hook and six ladies' buttons designed by the renowned painter George Morren. Unique Art Nouveau jewellery from the artist's estate.
