With some of Delvaix' most famous works, the museum offers a good view and understanding of his art. Impressive how the facade of a typical Belgian sea-side house, hides a modern and impressive museum.

As a painter I visit several painters museums. This museum is large with only Paul DELVAUX's oil paintings, watercolor paintings and litho's. This visit will work inspirational to my new art pieces. He is a real Master of Expressionisme.This is a MUST for every ARTLOVER

You rarely see a Delvaux in the UK (I last saw one at Tate Liverpool by sheer good fortune whilst I was the Mondrian exhibition). However, after reading the excellent 'Antwerp' by Nicholas Royle, a trip to Koksijde/Sint Idesbald has been high on my list....More

This is one of the three marvellous museums you can find in Koksijde. (The other two are:: Abdijmuseum Ten Duinen and Visserij museum). Maybe the most difficult to recommend because some like the Delvaux paintings others don’t.... but isn’t that inherent to all artistic works?...More

This museum has the largest collection of Delvaux's work in the world. It is easy to see how he used the same model in many of his paintings over a period of many years. It seems that he painted the blonde model a few times...More
