Ensor and de Bruycker in Tallinn

The KUMU Art Museum, a museum for modern art, opened its doors in 2006 in the Kardriorg Park in Tallinn (Estonia). The KUMU is now presenting the exhibition: Double Portrait. Flemish Symbolists James Ensor and Jules de Bruycker.

Jules de Bruycker (1870-1945) was born in Ghent and is a lesser known name. His works were from the highest technical level. He was very keen on drawing and printmaking. This artistic dialogue between de Bruycker and Ensor is uplifting.

The KUMU collected 120 paintings, drawings and prints. Most of the works are from the collection of the Ghent Museum of Fine Arts (MSK). Others come from the collections of the Mu.ZEE in Ostend, Museum of Fine Arts Charleroi and Ooidonk Fine Arts Gallery.
