Bracketed space: Back to nature 1900

From 14.02.23 > 05.11.23

Through this capsule exhibition, the Brussels City Museum turns the spotlight on the rich Art Nouveau heritage preserved in the city’s collections.

Ranging from embroidery to painting, as well as fashion and architecture, the items displayed vary widely and cover many different fields. The starting point of Back to nature is based on the inspiration that artists drew from nature at the beginning of the 20th century. The subtle aesthetics, along with the powerful lines and shapes of plants and flowers attracted their attention. As did the sublime depiction of woman in countless variations.

Discover this enchanting selection of works, most of which have rarely if ever been exhibited before.
