Somewhere along a canal in Wallonia is a pavilion housing twelve paintings… a museum within everyone’s reach. Director Claude François poetically immerses us in these twelve pictorial worlds, guided by twelve Belgian authors. The eye of the camera leads us into the heart of the canvases, revealing the multiple narratives unfolding within paintings by Gilberte Dumont, Paul Bril, Jos Albert, Léon Frédéric, Roger Goossens, Théo van Rysselberghe, Félicien Rops, Louis Van Spiegele, Cécile Douard, André Stas, Henri Bles, and an anonymous artist. This very personal anthology brings together works from all eras and all styles from private collections and museums throughout the Wallonia-Brussels Federation. An innovative and accessible history of Belgian art.
