Patronage of the King Baudouin Foundation
The collection held in funds administered by the King Baudouin Foundation consists of chefs-d’oeuvre and works which have a special significance for the Belgian heritage. They are examples of great historical importance or artistic value and are often reference works relating to a particular artist, style or period. The large and varied collection includes some 10,000 culturally significant items from a variety of disciplines. Antwerp’s museums boast a number of chefs-d’oeuvre they would not have been able to acquire without the intervention of the Foundation.
