Thanks to restoration work financed by the Baillet Latour Fund, “Dulle Griet” (or “Mad Meg”) by Pierre Brueghel the Elder, has regained all the richness of its original colours. This masterpiece is one of the centrepieces of a Breughel retrospective exhibition at the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna.
Brueghel’s "Margot the Mad", several masterpieces by Théodore Van Loon, a unique church rose-window and a model of Ancient Rome are among the pieces that have already found, or are finding, their former splendour thanks to support from our patrons’ funds.
