Despite its size, Belgium has a long and distinguished artistic tradition that goes back to the Middle Ages, considerably pre-dating the foundation of the current state in 1830.
Art from the areas making up modern Belgium is called in English Netherlandish up to the separation with the Netherlands from 1570 on, and Flemish until the 18th century.
Important monasteries in Belgium were centres of production in Carolingian art and Ottonian art, and later the area producing Romanesque Mosan art is now largely in Belgium.



Flanders became one of the richest areas in Europe in the later Middle Ages and Early Netherlandish painting produced work for both the wealthy townspeople as well as the courtiers of the Duke of Burgundy.
In the Renaissance Antwerp Mannerism was an early attempt by Flemish artists to respond to Italian Renaissance art, with Romanism a later phase.
Dutch and Flemish Renaissance painting culminated in the work of Pieter Bruegel the Elder🎨 in one direction, and the Flemish🎨 contribution to Northern Mannerism in a very different one.
Flemish Baroque painting is dominated by the figure of Rubens🎨, though like his pupil Anthony van Dyck🎨, he spent much of his career abroad.
There was also a great development of specialized genres in painting, paralleling those in Dutch Golden Age painting to the north, but with many differences.

Nonostante le sue dimensioni, il Belgio ha una lunga e distinta tradizione artistica che risale al Medioevo, considerevolmente prima della fondazione dello stato attuale nel 1830.
L'arte delle aree che compongono il Belgio moderno è chiamata in inglese olandese fino alla separazione con i Paesi Bassi dal 1570 in poi e fiammingo fino al XVIII secolo.
Importanti monasteri in Belgio erano centri di produzione nell'arte carolingia e nell'arte ottoniana, e in seguito l'area che produceva l'arte romanica di Mosan si trova ora in gran parte in Belgio.
Le Fiandre sono diventate una delle aree più ricche d'Europa nel tardo Medioevo e la prima pittura olandese ha prodotto lavoro sia per i ricchi cittadini che per i cortigiani del Duca di Borgogna.
Nel Rinascimento di Anversa il manierismo fu un primo tentativo degli artisti fiamminghi di rispondere all'arte rinascimentale italiana, con il romanismo in una fase successiva.
La pittura rinascimentale olandese e fiamminga culminò nell'opera di Pieter Bruegel il Vecchio in una direzione e il contributo fiammingo al manierismo nordico in un'altra.
La pittura barocca fiamminga è dominata dalla figura di Rubens, anche se come il suo allievo Anthony van Dyck, ha trascorso gran parte della sua carriera all'estero.
C'è stato anche un grande sviluppo di generi specializzati nella pittura, parallelamente a quelli della pittura olandese dell'età dell'oro a nord, ma con molte differenze.

Theo van Rysselberghe (Belgian Pointillist Painter, 1862-1926)
