Musée d'Art Moderne Review

Rather like New York's Guggenheim Museum in reverse, the Modern Art Museum burrows underground, circling downward eight floors. You reach it by an underground passage from the Musée d'Art Ancien. The collection is strong on Belgian and French art of the past 100 years, including such Belgian artists as the Expressionist James Ensor and the Surrealists Paul Delvaux and René Magritte, as well as Pierre Alechinsky and sculptor Pol Bury. Highlights include Delvaux's Pygmalion and Ensor's Skeletons Fighting for a Smoked Herring. Notable works by non-Belgian artists include Francis Bacon's The Pope with Owls. There are brochures and guided tours in English available.
