Over the next few months, numerous works from the King Baudouin Foundation’s collections will be enriching various exhibitions in Belgium and abroad, providing more opportunities to (re-)discover them in a different context.
The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium (MRBAB) are inaugurating a new thematic room in which a work by Alfred Stevens, 'Portrait de Camille Lemonnier dans dans l’atelier de l’artiste', acquired by the King Baudouin Foundation, will have place of honour.
The Brussels tapestry Le Jugement Dernier from the Worcester Art Museum (USA) has been able to be restored thanks to the René and Karin Jonckheere Fund. The tapestry is on show at the MRAH before being returned to Worcester.
Discover these amazing masks, used for male initiation ceremonies. They form part of the Belgian Jesuits’ ethnographic heritage. By lending its support to this exhibition, the Heritage Fund hopes to increase awareness of forgotten ethnographic collections.
