Masterpieces and Their Collectors
It goes without saying that Bruegel and Fouquet are the real masters behind ‘Dulle Griet’ and The Madonna. Yet it is thanks to master collectors that we are able to enjoy these outstanding works today. Step into the world of connoisseurs Fritz Mayer van den Bergh and Florent van Ertborn and discover their relentless nose for beauty.
About Fritz and his collection
The museum bears the name of Fritz Mayer van den Bergh, a man of means, art connoisseur and eminent collector. Who was he? What role does his mother play in the story? What did he collect? And where does Pieter Bruegel come into it all?
The name of Pieter Bruegel the Elder is known worldwide. However, this was not the case in Fritz Mayer van den Bergh’s day. Again, he was ahead of his time. Bruegel’s works are now the undoubted high points of the museum collection.
