One of Belgium’s most splendid open-air museums, the Middelheim Museum in Antwerp is a perennially popular locale for fans of sculpture. The Middelheim Museum began as a space for sculptural exhibitions in the early 1950s, but it has since grown into one of Antwerp’s most bustling attractions. Ludion Press has captured the brilliance of this space in a striking volume, The Middelheim Museum, Antwerp.
This text features more than 50 sculptural installations, including works by international figures Alexander Calder, Barbara Hepworth and Auguste Rodin, and complements their beauty with breathtaking views of the park’s lush landscape. With corresponding text by the Middelheim Museum’s Collection Manager, Lucie Bausart, The Middelheim Museum, Antwerp makes a marvelous memento for those who have visited the sculpture park; it is an equally compelling introduction for those who have yet to experience it.
