CollectifImpressions picturales - D'Albrecht Dürer à Félicien Rops
“During the second half of the 19th century, the booming art market allowed the progressive constitution of private and public collections. Whether they were dealers in canvases and paintings, literary critics or “simple” enlightened individuals, painting enthusiasts indulged their passion for collecting the most famous works of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries as well as those of their contemporaries. And when these collections became bequests, the museums became the conservatories of the artistic movements that crossed Europe, from Albrecht Dürer to Félicien Rops, not forgetting the unclassifiable James Ensor.
This collective work contributes to the enhancement of the heritage of the Musée d’Ixelles in Brussels, whose collections include masterpieces of ancient art and Belgian impressionism, brought together by two generous donors: Léon Gauchez (1825-1907) and Octave Maus (1856-1919). In this catalogue, discover styles, periods and pictorial themes that present a broad panorama of the art of the “flat country”.”
