  47. 47. During the French Revolution, the commissioners appointed in Southern Netherlands seized art works of every kind. Whilst many of these were taken away to the Louvre in Paris, some 1,500 items, mainly paintings, considered to be less valuable, were left in Brussels. Even if there were no masterpieces among them, they were to form the basis of what is now the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. The independence of Belgium in 1830 and the accession of Leopold I in 1831 marked the beginning of the Brussels museum's period of glory. In 1842 all the collections were purchased by the Belgian State; the museum became a national institution with a very active purchasing policy.
  48. 48. The Museum of Ancient Art collections consist mainly of paintings, drawings and sculptures, but also include an attractive ensemble of tapestries and objets d'art from the 14th to 18th centuries. Whilst a national museum's role is first and foremost to exhibit works from its own country, the collections have, from the start, included artwork from foreign schools. In the 19th century the museum invested extensively in paintings from the flamboyant Dutch Golden age, so that, in addition to the Flemish school, the Dutch art is particularly well represented.
