The City of Ghent’s museum (the STAM) re-opened its doors in December 2000, after renovation. Three works, restored thanks to support from Funds managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, illustrate the history of Ghent.
The Philippe de Dorlodot Collection, donated to the King Baudouin Foundation, has been entrusted to the Moretus Plaintin University Library in Namur. The collection consists of over 600 works printed in the 16th century by the famous Renaissance typographer Christophe Plantin.
Thanks to a generous donation made to the King Baudouin Foundation, the Royal Belgian Institute for Natural Sciences in Brussels, has now welcomed the skeleton of a woolly rhinoceros dating from the Ice Age. It is a rare specimen that is also in a remarkable state of conservation.
Let yourself be guided through the mysterious universe of Comès by the curators of the exhibition, Thierry Bellefroid and Éric Dubois. An ideal virtual journey in preparation for the re-opening of the exhibition Comès. D’Ombre et de Silence.
The King Baudouin Foundation US enables the donation of a painting by Hans Memling. The portrait of a member of the family De Rojas is returning to the city of Bruges, where it was painted. The painting dating from the 15th century will be kept at St. John’s Hospital (the Memling Museum).
