Since last year, S.M.A.K. has been managing a selection of artworks from the Matthys-Colle Foundation. The start of this public-private partnership, which is unique in Belgium, was marked by the Flemish Community’s purchase of a painting from this collection for the museum: ‘Great American Nude #45’ (1963) by the American pop artist Tom Wesselmann. This acquisition was accompanied by the long-term loan of 39 other artworks from Mr Roger and Mrs Hilda Matthys-Colle’s prestigious collection, all by internationally renowned artists.
