Belfius Art Gallery
Considered to be the country’s biggest private collection of Belgian art, the Belfius collection currently contains more than 4,300 pieces, covering five hundred years of Belgian creativity. It is divided into three sections: the Flemish masters from the 16th and 17th centuries, with works by Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Pourbus, Jacob Jordaens and Jan Brueghel the Elder; modern art with Xavier Mellery, Émile Claus, Théo van Rysselberghe, Constant Permeke, Paul Delvaux, René Magritte and Rik Wouters; and contemporary art, from 1960 to the present day, with Jan Fabre, Pierre Alechinsky, Michael Borremans, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Ann Veronica Janssens and Luc Tuymans. Each year, the Belfius Art Gallery, which is located on the 32nd floor of the bank’s headquarters, organises a themed exhibition showcasing a selection of works from the collection and offering a breathtaking view of Brussels.

Exhibition: “Women. Underexposed” which, going back in time, reveals the history of women artists in Belgian art. An environment long dominated by men until the trailblazers rebelled to proudly claim recognition in their own right. A fascinating exploration of a still-topical issue that encourages us to ask questions about the society we live in.
