The collection of paintings in the Royal Museums of Fine Arts is rather impressive, though the museum is not as huge as Prado or Uffizi. It houses mostly works of Flemish painters as well as Italian, the German school of painting and some others. They have really superb works of Rubens and Pieter Bruegel the Elder (his son Pieter the Younger is also represented). Tintoretto in Brussels was a discovery; it certainly was a nice surprise. The major hall is arranged as an open gallery with canvases on the walls and benches by the balustrade, very convenient, you know. You’re allowed to take pictures, but what seemed strange is that the names of the paintings do not have an English version. I haven’t seen anything of the kind in any European museum!
