The inception of the museum was in the beginning of the 20th century when Henri Van Cutsem, a Belgian art collector, offered his collection to the city of Tournai in 1905. The collection contained important works of important 19th century French painters like Manet, Monet, Seurat and others.
The Musée des Beaux-Arts has a considerable collection of painting and sculpture, beginning with Medieval Flemish primitives and paying special attention to Impressionism. Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Manet and Seurat are all represented, but there are also earlier pieces by masters like Pieter Brueghel the Younger, Peter Paul Rubens and Jacob Jordaens.
