The home of this unjustly little-known out side of Belgium artist. Excellent sculptor who combined a Romantic, heroic view of the figure with Social Realism and the struggle of the working class.

Meurnier's work influenced many of the later social realists although as the amazingly helpful guide points out, without the same political agenda. This collection of his work in his house and studio is tucked away near the bois de Cambre and only open on weekdays,...More

Anyone who has ever seen the idealised statuary of Communist or Fascist regimes will see a familiarity with the work of Constantin Meunier, a nineteenth century artist. On a family tree, Meunier stands first in line and looks out above all the lesser propagandists who...More

Meunier museum is too small to show the big collection of works of the Belgian artist famous for his monumental bronze sculptures, whose some are exhibited in the former Meunier's workshop, at the bottom of the museum. Figures of the heroic labour of the industrial...More
