Exposition Museum Gevaert-Minne - august 2022 / october 2022

The museum's regular collection contains works of art from the significant classical period of the Leiedorp Sint-Martens-Latem. It includes works by the early explorers (Xavier De Cock), the first Latem group (e.g., Valerius de Saedeleer, George Minne), the intermediate figure Albert Servaes and the second Latem group (e.g., Leon De Smet).

The museum is the former residence of Edgar Gevaert (1891-1965), son of an industrialist from Oudenaarde. In addition to being a painter, he was a poet, writer, and composer and married Marie Minne, daughter of the sculptor. As a pacifist, he committed himself after World War II and worked for a world government and parliament. Countless letters and magazines in the former living room bear witness to this. Gevaert's painting studio is still recognizable by its large windows.
