Belgian artist Folon presents over 500 artworks in the Castle of La Hulpe's farm, just 20 minutes from Brussels.

The foundation

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)
