The current Museum of Fine Arts was born from the genius of Art Nouveau architecture, Victor Horta.

Inaugurated on June 17, 1928, it was specially designed to house the very rich collections bequeathed by the patron Henri Van Cutsem in 1904, the building itself is well worth seeing, so original is the combination of radiating rooms arranged around a central polygonal hall.

Its collections offer visitors an interesting global approach to the history of pictorial production from the 15th century to the present day.

Some of its major pieces

  • Some masters of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, such as Snyders, Rubens, Jordaens, Watteau and Piat-Sauvage
  • Don' miss the Impressionists (Manet , Monet, Seurat, Van Gogh...)
  • Nor the Belgian masterpieces (Ensor, Claus, de Braekeleer...), some artists being from Tournai itself (Roger de le Pasture, Gallait, Pion, Dumoulin, Bruegel...).
