Belfius Art Gallery

Art & culture

With over 4,300 works of art, resulting from the fusion of collections from the Crédit Communal, Paribas Bank Belgium and the BACOB Bank, the Belfius Art Gallery is located on the 32nd floor of the Belfius Tower on Place Rogier in Brussels.
At the end of the Second World War, both the Crédit Communal and Paribas Belgium began acquiring works linked to the country’s national heritage. This was done to ensure that the art collections would not end up abroad. As the Crédit Communal focused on works produced after 1860, Paribas Belgium’s priorities were the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, as well as contemporary art. The BACOB Bank, which began to put its collection together in 1980, focused exclusively on contemporary Belgian art. 

Today, the collection includes creations by painters such as Anthony Van Dyck, Jacob Jordaens, Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Pourbus, and many more. The more modern section includes all Belgian movements since realism and contains works by key figures such as Charles Degroux, James Ensor and Constant Permeke. The section devoted to contemporary art features world-famous artists such as Marcel Broodthaers, Roger Raveel and also Pierre Alechinsky.
