The Basilica of Koekelberg hosts an extensive collection of paintings and sculptures from the Modern Religious Art Museum of the diocese of Bruges.

 

Religion is often a source of inspiration for these artists. Above all, the figure of Christ is central in this artistic spectrum. Servaes painted Christmas and Permeke created a head of Christ in bronze. Other eye-catchers are Ensor, Luc Hoenraet, Tom Frenken and Tàpies.

 

The acquisitions of the last decade are very important in the presentation of the museum: there are 7 original lithography’s of Manessier representing Easter; " Càntic del sol ", 31 etchings of Joan Miró on the psalm of Franciscus and "Passage du bleu", a painting of Geneviève Asse on a biblical theme.
