Ends in 38 days

The region that we now know as Belgium, and the areas that surround it, saw paintings on fantastic themes emerge and flourish on top of the traditional pictorial realism that had been developing since the late medieval period. Although these works portray fanciful imaginary worlds, the demons, monsters and other grotesque creatures drawn by the Flemish painters — heirs to Bosch and Bruegel’s legacies — possess a vivid and lifelike presence due to their realistic depiction. This exhibition documents the lineage of the fantastic art in this region that gave birth to this particular world, showcasing works from first-class collections located both in Japan and overseas. Roughly 500 years of Belgian art history is covered, beginning with Flemish paintings from the end of 15th century, moving on through to 19th–century symbolism, and finally presenting works by contemporary artists.
