BRUSSELS.- Due to improvement works of the HVAC installations (Heath Ventilation & Airco) the Musée Magritte Museum will be closed to the public from January 3rd to 31st, 2011. These works have been considered necessary following the recent technological developments.

On this occasion some renovation works will be caried out in the exhibition rooms (among others painting works). All these works guarantee the conservation rules for this remarkable collection.

The Musée Magritte Museum, open since the 2nd of June 2009 and situated in the Altenloh Hotel (a building of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium) reached no less than 500.000 visitors within one year !

The museum is located at the Place Royale, in the very heart of Brussels. Thanks to the competences sponsorship developed by the French and Belgian GDF SUEZ subsidiary companies and with the support of the Magritte Foundation this museum was renovated. The museum displays the works of the surrealist artist, which belong to the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium and which are mainly the result of purchases as well as of the legacies Irène Hamoir-Scutenaire and Georgette Magritte. Many private collectors, as well as public and private institutions have contributed to the Musée Magritte Museum project by lending their masterpieces.

This multidisciplinary collection is the richest in the world. It contains more than 200 works consisting of oils on canvas, gouaches, drawings, sculptures and painted objects as well as advertising posters, music scores, vintage photographs and films produced by Magritte himself.

The Musée Magritte Museum is the world reference centre regarding the study of the artist. With the support of INEO media system, the Musée Magritte Museum has developed an online research centre, which gives access to the archives in connection with the painter's life and works.
