L’Immortalité chimérique. Camille De Taeye in the books

25th May 2023 – 24th January 2024
A bon vivant with a subversive sense of humour and a tragic life, Camille De Taeye (1938-2013), a Brussels painter, loved books. Evolving on the fringes of artistic trends and movements, he designed books with several authors, which he accompanied with lithographs. Each print is an echo of the texts but also of the multiple facets of the painter that are reflected in his paintings.

A spring, a bookbinder: Nathalie Berjon

The Wittockiana is pleased to present the work of Nathalie Berjon as part of a series of exhibitions entitled “A spring, a bookbinder”.
From 9th June to 17th September 2023


The Wittockiana, which bears the name of its founder, was created by Michel Wittock. During his lifetime, he assembled an impressive collection of books, manuscripts and autographs.

The Wittockiana is the museum of book arts and bookbinding in Brussels. Its collection, which comprises almost 3,000 works, is made up of unique books: all of them carry their material history, the testimony of an artist, a bookbinder, or the mark of their author.

In 2010, the Wittockiana was recognised as a museum by the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles. Thanks to this recognition, it can now be accredited as a museum of public utility, at the service of the community and of the book. In addition, Michel Wittock donated his collection to the King Baudouin Foundation, which also ensured the collection’s continuity by acquiring the building that houses it. In this way, Michel Wittock’s work lives on today.
