The Castle of La Hulpe's farm, just 20 minutes from Brussels, is home to the Folon Foundation, which galleries present over 500 artworks by the famous Belgian artist.
Jean-Michel Folon (1934-2005) was one of Belgium’s great illustrators, best known for his poster designs. More than 500 of his works, spanning 40 years, are housed in a group of restored farm buildings in the grounds of the 19th-century castle of La Hulpe, in Walloon Brabant province. As a young boy, Folon played in the château’s magnificent park, which he called “the garden of the thousand rhododendrons”. Watercolours, engravings, posters and sculptures – many of them inspired by these gardens – are enhanced by music and film to create a magnificent exhibition.
The site also organises:
- temporary exhibitions
- workshops for children or adults
- birthday parties for the little ones
- guided tours for groups (classical or off the beaten tracks)
