Overview

On the upper floor of this elegant city mansion with its picturesque garden (16th to 19th century) the oeuvre of the versatile British artist Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) is on display on the top floor. Brangwyn was both a graphic artist and a painter, as well as a designer of carpets, furniture and ceramics. The ground floor is the setting for temporary plastic art exhibitions.

Nice to meet you Mister Frank Brangwyn. I never heard of you before, and I wouldn't have till now if the entry to the Arentshuis wasn't included in the museum pass. Interesting disciple of William Morris, the father of the Arts-and-Crafts Movement.

This is not a significant museum. There are a few oddities downstairs. There is a Frank Brangwyn exhibition upstairs. This is an OK museum but I would not go out of my way to visit.

The promo blurb on this place told me to expect temporary art exhibitions on the ground floor connected to the Groeninge collection - whether that's what I saw, I'm not sure - it seemed to be a random collection of household bits from times gone...More

Upper floor devoted to works by British artist Frank Brangwyn, whilst ground floor has some historical art & artefacts. Loved the interactive display showing an old entomology illustrated book. Mainly a venue for hard core art lovers.

This small museum has a permanent exhibition of works by Frank Brangwyn, who worked with William Morris for a while. He was born in Bruges, which is why it's there, I assume. We really enjoyed the exhibition, which was sympathetically and clearly laid out, and...More
