Admire the masterpieces of these two Ostend painters in the dedicated Ensor and Spilliaert wing. 


Ostend and James Ensor are inextricably linked. James Ensor had a soft spot for ‘his’ Ostend: the city was his muse and his source of inspiration. He loved the city and its many people, the turbulent North Sea, the annual and colourful carnival season... With the Ensor and Spilliaert wing, the museum wants to highlight the masterpieces in its collection. Visitors are taken to the Ostend of the past, reflected in the Ostend of today.
