A museum surrounded by nature

In October 2000, Jean-Michel Folon (1934-2005) founded a museum in the Château de la Hulpe farm, at the heart of the Solvay Regional Estate. Just 20 minutes from Brussels, this 227-hectare oasis of greenery is bordered by the Forêt de Soignes, criss-crossed with paths and studded with tranquil ponds (which are home to remarkable flora and fauna).

The Belgian artist designed the museum route with original and interactive scenography consisting of installations, music, and lighting and visual effects. The 15 exhibition halls showcase his iconic images/figures including inks, watercolours, paintings, etchings, posters, objects, sculptures... Through these 350 or so pieces, visitors can discover the many facets of the work of this multidisciplinary artist who very quickly achieved international recognition thanks to the universality of his message.

The Fondation Folon is a non-profit foundation which, through the activities it organises, continues to champion the artist's values and campaigns for human rights and nature conservation.
