Antoine Wiertz Museum
The Musée Antoine Wiertz, a studio-museum in the Léopold district in Brussels, is a division of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Antoine-Joseph Wiertz (1806-1865) was an artist of the Belgian Romantic movement and is known for his spectacular, huge paintings.
Little known tiny museum, somewhat hidden between the pompous buildings of the European Parlement. It contains exclusively works from Wiertz, but that's absolutely not a con ! The man was very talented indeed, and clearly had no lack of imagination. His paintings are very realistic, with a sniff of surrealism, a pinch of romantism. Wiertz is somewhat sui generis, difficult to compare with someone else. Absolutely worth while a visit, if you're fond of 19 th century paintings, but shhhhh... don't tell it to everyone, that way the masses don't spoil the intimous atmosphere !
