From this June 20 you can discover a new temporary exhibition in the Gilliot & Roelants Tile Museum in Hemiksem Belgium, near Antwerp. This exhibition is entirely devoted to Art Nouveau.

From the impressive tile collection by Roberto Pozzo – with more than 9,000 tiles – which has been managed by the Gilliot & Roelants Tile Museum in Hemiksem since 2016, we have selected some 30 decorative panels and more than 300 tiles that are among the most beautiful examples of Belgian production; both from Gilliot & Cie’s plant as from competitors such as Boch Frères, Helman, the SA La Majolique, the Manufactures de Céramiques de Hasselt, the S.A. La Dyle from Wijgmaal and many Walloon factories including the Faienceries de Nimy.

Come and see this feast for the eye!
