Historical Context of Belgium
Bordered by France and the Netherlands, the modest country of Belgium has been considerably influenced by its neighbours throughout time and asserted itself as an exciting and inventive artistic centre in the second half of the nineteenth century. Belgian art productions were essential in the developing of Surrealism in the 1930s, mainly through the works of Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux. Among others, Marcel Broodthaers, Wim Delvoye, Francis Alys and Luc Tuymans are key figures of the Belgian art scene of the twentieth century. Highly influenced by Belgian artists, the Symbolist movement was a major artistic trend, early precursor to Surrealism, and including artists such as Léon Spilliaert, Jean Delville, Fernand Khnopff and James Ensor. As the age of the avant-garde began to take place in Europe towards the late nineteenth century, Brussels turned into a hub for the Art Nouveau movement, which included the architect Victor Horta amongst its creators.
