Modern Religious Art Museum
Closed from 31/10/2016 till 19/04/2017
The Basilica of Koekelberg hosts an extensive collection of paintings and sculptures from the Modern Religious Art Museum of the diocese of Bruges.
Religion is often a source of inspiration for these artists. Above all, the figure of Christ is central in this artistic spectrum. Servaes painted Christmas and Permeke created a head of Christ in bronze. Other eye-catchers are Ensor, Luc Hoenraet, Tom Frenken and Tàpies.
The acquisitions of the last decade are very important in the presentation of the museum: there are 7 original lithographys of Manessier representing Easter; " Càntic del sol ", 31 etchings of Joan Miró on the psalm of Franciscus and Passage du bleu, a painting of Geneviève Asse on a biblical theme.
Opening hours: every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday: 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
With a ticket for the panorama, you can also visit the museum.
The Basilica has a new work of art from San Damon, "the crucifixion". It can be seen at the first floor of the Basilica.
You can find more information about the artist and the work here.
