Nineteenth century Belgian art is represented by the genre paintings of Joseph Stevenson (1819-1892) and Hendrick Leys (1815- 1869). They are evidence of the strengthening of realist tendencies in nineteenth century Belgian art.

The lightly coloured After a Walk by Gustave de Jonghe (1825-1893) illustrates the influence of the French Impressionists upon Belgian artists. The work of the distinguished painter, sculptor and engraver Constantin Meunier (1830- 1905), who portrayed the life of the Belgian proletariat, is illustrated by a small bronze relief entitled The Head of a Miner.

Nineteenth century Dutch art is represented by Jan Weissenbruch’s Street in a Dutch Town and by Albert Neuhuijs’ Family of a Cobbler.
