Warm regards,

The permanent collection of the MDD (as the museum is called) includes works of internationally famous Flemish artists such as Jean Brusselmans, Gustave and Leon De Smet, Valerius De Saedeleer, James Ensor, George Minne, Constant Permeke, Albert Servaes, Gustave van de Woestijn and Rik Wouters. These works were bought as of the end of the 1920s by the spouses Dhondt-Dhaenens, who decided in 1967 to make their collection accessible to the public by setting up this museum. Jules Dhondt was a successful businessman and a passionate art collector from Ghent who established in Deurle in 1938. Faithful to his Flemish convictions he bought mainly (though not exclusively) art from his own region. The original collection has now been expanded and complemented with works of more recent artists, such as Isa Genzken (Germany), Rombouts & Droste (Belgium), David Tremlett (UK), Richard Venlet (Belgium) en Marthe Wery (Belgium).
