The fisherman’s tale in pictures - Scenes from the Mu.ZEE collection

Fishermen’s lives excite people’s imaginations. During the Modernist period, too, Belgian artists tried to capture their fascination for the subject in lively scenes.

Artists focussed on the work ethos and the bustling life of the fish market or the fishermen’s district, but also on the melancholy of the lonely fisherman and the atmosphere of a still life with fish.
