About the Museum

Dedicated to Belgian Romantic painter, sculptor and writer Antoine Wiertz (1806-1865) and located in his former home and studio, the Musée Wiertz presents a significant collection of the artist’s frequently monumental paintings, portraits and self-portraits. Highlights include the eight-metre-long Greeks and Trojans Fighting over the Body of Patroclus and possibly Wiertz's best known painting, The Two Young Girls (La belle Rosine), which explores life and death. The museum became part of Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique in 1868.
