They offer an overview of the Belgian painters’ school of the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century through an extensive gallery of portraits, realistic and impressionist landscapes, of socially minded artists as well as artists part of one of the many innovative movements that came up at the turn of the century, such as Guillaume Charlier (1854-1925).
