Florent van Ertborn (1784–1840) and Fritz Mayer van den Bergh (1858–1901) collected paintings, sculptures, manuscripts and other art objects with immense passion. Their acquisitions were often bargains, sometimes investments and occasionally brilliant discoveries. Beginning on 5 October 2019, this pair of astute collectors invite you to visit the Mayer van den Bergh Museum in Antwerp, where Fritz and Florent will sweep you up in their passion for collecting and share several of their masterpieces. The highlight is the recently restored Dulle Griet (‘Mad Meg’) by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Specially for this exhibition, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts (KMSKA), which is currently closed for renovation, is showing a number of masterpieces again for the first time in several years, including Fouquet’s enigmatic Madonna.
