Brief visit

Called in briefly after visiting the Groeningemuseum but wasn't really to our taste as it was mostly modern art. Got in free with Bruges City Card.

Very reasonably priced to get in, I enjoyed the darker pieces on show here. My partner was paricularly struck by this artist and his work, so we spent quite some time here. He was inspired by Brangwyn's work and found that this visit has directly influenced some ideas for his MA.

This man was a prolific artist, his life spanning over many years. He has produced an impressive body of work, and he ended his life in Ditchling East Sussex. I was taken with the power of his ability to depict humanity, and I'd gone back again. Sadly couldn't find more than a few postcards of his work.

In the garden of this 18th century abode are The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse in bronze by Rik Poot. An interesting group sculture representing famine, death,revolution and plague. A cheery topic but worth seeing.

After I saw expo picasso and salvador dali, I visited Arentshuis. I nearly could die by too much surrealism, Frank Brangwyn helped me. Every one of his works is masterpiece. I am glad to see his paintings.

The Brangwyn collection on the top floor is quite extensive. It contains many paintings and numerous charcoals. While some of the works we found interesting, overall his style is not amongst our favourites.

The temporary exhibit was a modern artist. We did not care for his works. We had hoped the house would be interesting inside, but it was not. Entrance was included in our Brugge Museum Pass.

I only went to this museum because it was combined with the Groeningemuseum, and I had the City Pass. It is a very beautiful building, but a small collection of art work. I spent more time in the park outside the museum, it has some really beautiful sculptures. I much preferred the Groeningemuseum!

I confess that my art knowledge is very limited, and truly I wouldn't be able to identify one painter from another. With this in mind, after a bit of research I opted to see what Frank Brangwyn had to offer. I felt that maybe I might be able to appreciate his work because he worked with lots of different mediums.... More

I must confess we had not known of Frank Brangwyn but went to the Arenthuis with our City Pass which gave us free entry. We were very impressed by the etchings of both Brangwyn and Jules de Bruycker, but somewhat disappointed that there was no jewellery and little else of Brangwyn's apart from his paintings and engravings. A well-laid out... More
