The only museum designed by the great architect Victor Horta, the Museum of Fine Arts in Tournai will soon enter a major renovation and extension phase.

The building is an interesting example of the transition between Art Nouveau and Art Deco inspired modernism, and is undoubtedly one of the very first prototypes of a modern museum on an international scale.

With works by renowned artists such as Ensor, Fantin-Latour, Manet, Monet, Seurat, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and Van der Weyden, its collection is recognised as one of the most important in Belgium.

Pending the start of construction in 2024, and based on the rediscovery of artists, masterpieces or broader themes, the curators have initiated a cycle of exhibitions since 2020 aimed at offering rotating displays and new views on this important heritage.
