Tumult in the City

From April 14 until November 2017 at Gemeentemuseum in The Hague.


Starting in the 1880s, young painters like George Hendrik Breitner, Isaac Israels and Willem Witsen made urban life the focus of their drawings and paintings. The Hague was no longer the Dutch art capital; Amsterdam was more important.

The Gemeentemuseum Den Haag presents these 'Tachtigers’ (artists of the 1880s) – or Dutch Impressionists, as they are sometimes called – in the first major exhibition of their work to be held at the museum for many years.




Intrigue: James Ensor by Luc Tuymans

From March 10 until July 2 at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

Rik Wouters mastered painting, sculpting and drawing: his extraordinary career made him an essential representative of Modern Art in Belgium.

Wouters brought us brilliant and colourful art, far from the dramas that marked his existence until his early death in 1916 at the age of 33.
