Constantin Meunier (1831-1905)

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium hosts a comprehensive retrospective dedicated to the work of 19th-century realist painter and sculptor Constantin Meunier (1831-1905).

The exhibition provides the first major overview of the Belgian artist’s career since the last retrospective in Leuven in 1909. Meunier is known mainly for his modernist depictions of manual labourers, dockers and miners, and his paintings capture Belgium's industrial, social and political developments at the end of the 19th century.

However this exhibition also sheds light on his lesser-known earlier works which include civil portraits and religious scenes, as well as showing a selection of bronzes, works on paper and archive documents.

Tues-Sun 10.00-17.00
