Bruegel is not who you think he is…

Bruegel is a world-renowned painter, but in the 16th century it wasn’t his paintings he was known for – it was his graphic work which brought him widespread fame. This 2019 exhibition offers you the opportunity to get up close and personal with Bruegel’s famous prints. As a pioneer in the rediscovery of Bruegel’s lesser-known masterpieces, KBR will exhibit its complete collection of prints during this special Bruegel year, at ‘The World of Bruegel in Black and White’.


This exhibition is set in the apartments of the Palace of Charles of Lorraine, a unique 18th century hidden treasure in the heart of Brussels. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover what are perhaps the lesser-known works of this great Flemish master!

We offer guided tours for groups:
