The Léon Courtin - Marcelle Bouché Fund has just acquired 31 stained glass window prototypes, made in the 1970s. The glass windows, which are in an abstract geometric style, were originally destined for the Church of Saint-Hadelin in Celles, in the province of Namur.
The original score of the only opera composed by Henry Vieuxtemps, La fiancée de Messine, has been acquired by the Manoël de la Serna Fund of the King Baudouin Foundation. The work had sunk into oblivion.
Thanks to the King Baudouin Foundation, a masterpiece of 17th century European sculpture is returning to Brussels. Sculpted in white marble, Charité was created between 1673-78 by Jan Van Delen as a commission from the Counts of Tour et Tassis for their chapel at the Sablon Church.
