Redesign of the Groeninge museum including a new scenography for the permanent collection, a scenography for the temporary exhibition ‘Jan van Eyck in Bruges’, new seating furniture and the redesign of the museumshop.
The museum houses a comprehensive survey of six centuries of Flemish and Belgian painting, from Jan van Eyck to Marcel Broodthaers. The museum’s many highlights include its collection of Early Netherlandish paintings, works by a wide range of Renaissance and Baroque masters, as well as a selection of paintings from the 18th and 19th century neo-classical and realist periods, milestones of Belgian symbolism and modernism, masterpieces of Flemish Expressionism and many items from the city’s collection of post-war modern art.
