This summer, don’t miss the double exhibition at Knokke and Retranchement (just up the coast in the Netherlands) dedicated to the abstract art collection offered by Jos Knaepen to the King Baudouin Foundation. Sam Francis, Robert Motherwell and many other great names are to be found alongside the works of two Belgian artists: Luc Peire and Johan De Wit.
Remarkable craftmanship and ambitious entrepreneurship contributed to the development of the art of engraving and printmaking during the century of Breughel. Hans Bol’s series of engravings “Emblemata Evangelica”, acquired by the King Baudouin Foundation, bears witness to this period and are shown at the exhibition “Prints in in the Age of Breughel”.
The Fill-Trevisiol Collection of Coptic textiles is now being exhibited in its entirety for the first time. An initiative of the Mariemont Museum in homage to the generosity of Maria Luise Fill and Robert Trevisiol.
