The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA) conserves about 7600 paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints. Major ensembles by the Flemish Primitives, Peter Paul Rubens and the Baroque, Henri De Braekeleer and the Flemish expressionists characterise the institution. The museum has the most important Ensor collection in the world and the largest collection of works by Rik Wouters.
In addition to works of art from the Southern Netherlands and Belgium, it also houses a number of remarkable top works from abroad, including paintings by Jean Fouquet, Titian and Amedeo Modigliani and sculptures by Ossip Zadkine and Auguste Rodin.

The museum building will no longer be accessible for the duration of the renovation.


Due to the reopening of our renovated museum building in 2020 and the increased preparatory activities resulting from it, the KMSKA feels obliged to announce a temporary cessation of loans. Henceforth, the KMSKA will only consider loan requests for exhibitions ending before September 2017. However, loans which have been approved prior to this announcement will be finalized. We apologise for any inconveniences this temporary cessation of loans may cause you.
