The new exhibition of the Museum of History and Art of Durbuy, plunges you into the heart of this vast natural massif and introduces you to some of the characteristics that make this cross-border region unique in Europe.

The Ardennes, a land of legends with Celtic influences, but above all marked by world conflicts, is inhabited by women and men of strong character. A character forged by the forest, the climate and the hard labour to work the earth. The Ardennes spread over three countries: Belgium, France and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Countries each with their own individuality but with similar cultures.

Their characteristics have inspired artists past and present. Fernand Léger, Arthur Rimbaud, Paul Verlaine, Milo Dardenne, Albert Raty, André Bosmans, Marcel Lucas, Louis Loncin, will guide you in your discovery of the Ardennes.

20 other contemporary artists will present their "Art'denne". These works reflect their contemporary vision of the Ardennes. As a visitor, you play a central role in this exhibition: you may indicate your favourite works.
