The Brookner Room

I still call it, in deference to Auden, the Musée des Beaux-Arts, though it goes under several other names now (including Bozar, regrettably).

David, Mars Disarmed by Venus, 1824
(In foreground) Godecharle, Charity, after 1795
David, Portrait of a Young Boy

David, Death of Marat, 1793

Ingres, Virgil Reading the Aeneid to Augustus

Navez, La Famille de Hemptinne, 1816
(One of my favourite paintings, this. Such an image of
fidelity! How noble they look! How good-hearted!)
