DESCRIPTION

The Art of Giving examines the role gifts and legacies have played in the MSK’s collection over the years. These works given by Jheronimus Bosch, Frans Hals, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Peter Paul Rubens, Jacopo Tintoretto, George Minne and Anthony van Dyck have played a major part in establishing the museum’s international repute.


In ‘De kunst van het schenken’ tenslotte wordt de rol onderzocht die schenkingen en legaten hebben gespeeld in de collectiegeschiedenis van het museum. Kunstwerken van Jheronimus Bosch, Frans Hals, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Peter Paul Rubens, Jacopo Tintoretto, George Minne en Anthony van Dyck die in het verre en recente verleden werden geschonken, bepalen immers in belangrijke mate de internationale uitstraling van het museum.


L'Art de la donation aborde l’importance des dons et legs dans la constitution de la collection du Musée des Beaux-Arts. Des œuvres de Jérôme Bosch, Frans Hals, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Pierre Paul Rubens, Le Tintoret, George Minne ou encore Anthony Van Dyck offertes au Musée déterminent en grande partie sa réputation internationale.
