Jean Baptist Bonnecroy’s “Vue de Bruxelles” has been temporarily reinstalled in its city of origin. The exhibition devoted to The Arenbergs at the M-Museum in Leuven has assembled three cityscapes, all painted by Bonnecroy in the 17th century for the Château of Heverlee near Leuven.
This year, the 4th study day, traditionally organised in mid-October by the Laubespin-Lagarde Fund, had as its theme the management of ancient arboreal heritage. Initiated as part of the restoration of the Gardens of Freÿr, these study days aim to share knowledge relating to gardens.
Restoration and an interactive presentation using new technologies will bring new life to the model of Antique Rome at the Museum of Art and History in Brussels. The Alexis Liénard Fund is supporting the preservation of this remarkable element of our heritage, which each year attracts thousands of visitors!
Thanks to impressive restoration work, supported by the Richard Forgeur Fund, a very rare element of our architectural cultural heritage has regained all its former splendour and been returned to its original setting.
