We'd passed by the museum when it was closed but the "four horsemen of the apocalypse" looked interesting and the exterior of the museum was imposing. We visited on a Sunday and welcomed the nice early opening (UK take note). We were interested that the exhibition on the first floor was devoted to the Bruges-born British artist Brangwyn.

Situated in Arentshuis Park, just off the Groeninge, this fascinating little gem is worth a stop. Sculptured by Flemish artist Rik Poot, the statues represent the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from Revelations, War, Pestilence, Famine and Death. If you like your symbolism a little on the dark side, have a peep.

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.
