The Arentshuis museum in Bruges
The Arentshuis is a museum right next door to the Groeningemuseum. While the Groeningemuseum is more a museum for paintings, the Arentshuis museum is focusing more on all forms of visual arts. The building is an 18th-century mansion house that is situated next to the waterway Dijver. The waterway the Reie runs under it. A beautiful gate gives entrance to the house and the lush garden.
On the first floor of the building, there is a permanent exhibition with works of the British-Bruges artist Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956). The very versatile artist not only created paintings and etches but also furniture, carpets, and objects. On the ground floor, there are temporary exhibitions of contemporary art.
