Located in the heart of Brussels, the Musée Fin-de-Siècle provides insight into the extraordinary artistic revolution that took place across northern Europe at the turn of the century. Brussels became a focus for this burgeoning artistic scene with a distinctive blend of symbolism and Art Nouveau, whose central figures and legacy are explored at the Musée Fin-de-Siècle. One of the Musées Royaux Des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, and featuring works by Belgian artists such as James Ensor, Henry Van de Velde and Philippe Wolfers as well as international artists including Paul Gauguin, Auguste Rodin and Pierre Bonnard, the museum is devoted to a unique moment in artistic history.
