The Musée Modern Museum presents an array of works dating from the late-18th century to the present day. Jacques-Louis David’s famous Death of Marat joins small-format examples of Belgian Neoclassicism, alongside works that consider the Belgian revolution and the founding of the country. The collection of modern and contemporary art is undergoing extensive reinstallation, but the public can still see temporary displays drawn from these holdings until the collection is permanently installed in the PostmodernLab Museum.
