About the Museum
The Musée Meunier Museum is the former home and studio of artist, painter, sculptor and draughtsman Constantin Meunier (1831-1905). On display are works created between 1875 and 1905, which concentrate on various social and industrial aspects of life in Belgium. This period saw the artist tackle these important themes first through drawing and later through sculpture, which cemented his importance in the history of Realism. The museum, home to over 700 works, gives an insight into the life and career of the artist, and features key works, such as his painting The Broken Pot and sculpture The Hammerer.
