Gleaming vegetables and fruit
Joachim Beuckelaer’s 16th-century Vegetable Market had quite a few problems to contend with before its conservation treatment.
Our Ensor collection is one of the KMSKA’s greatest treasures. It truly is a goldmine – the largest ensemble of the artist’s work anywhere in the world. James Ensor has gone down in history as the painter of masks, yet he was much more than that.
In the first episode of our Ensor video series, curator Herwig Todts takes off the masks. And we also pay a visit to Ostend, where Ensor was born, walked his dogs and eventually died.
