The Brafa Art Fair, created in 1956, is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious art fairs, famous for the high quality fine art, antiques, modern and contemporary art and design it offers.
Bruno Couck has been working as an art dealer for more than 30 years and this is not by chance. As a teenager, he decided to buy his first painting and, one thing leading to another, made it his profession. It is with passion for art and a lot of taste that he learned to find exceptional pieces.
The Bruno Couck Gallery, located in the heart of the Sablon, at the corner of Rue Allard and Van Moer, specialises in the exhibition of 19th and 20th century paintings and sculptures. You can find works by Belgian and French artists but also from other horizons. The gallery regularly organises exhibitions of contemporary sculptors.
