Immerse yourself in the particular world of painter, sculptor and writer Antoine Wiertz (1806-1865), one of Belgium's most controversial Romantic artists. This visionary had this impressive studio built in 1850 at the expense of the Belgian State. His monumental paintings, inspired by the great masters of the past such as Rubens, Michelangelo and Raphael, hang there alongside his many small sketches.
This museum is located in Ixelles in the house-cum-studio of artist, painter, sculptor and draughtsman Constantin Meunier (1831-1905).
Unfairly overlooked by the general public, the home and studio of painter and sculptor Constantin Meunier (1831-1905) in Ixelles presents a hundred and fifty at times monumental works, and bronzes of all sizes. The creations of this artist inspired by the industrial, political and social developments of late 19th century Belgium provide a realistic view of the world of work and industry of his day.
