A study day at the BELvue Museum on 5 October 2015 will focus on ethnographic and non-European collections. The common theme for the day will be the challenges facing the conservation and presentation of such collections.
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.
The aim of this fund is to safeguard works of art that show the European dimension of Brussels. The fund has supported, for instance, research and restoration of the Passion Reredos, by Güstrow, one of the most prestigious Brabant altarpieces made in the 16th century. Closing date for the call: 30 April 2015.
