Aquilin Arents the Beerteghem, the last private owner, gives its name to this neoclassical building from the last quarter of the 18th century. The portal, with four columns palm leaf capitals, and various renovations in Egyptian empire style show how the prevailing Egyptomania also found in Bruges entrance. They probably date from when Napoleon Bonaparte's visit to Bruges in 1810.
The beautiful 18th century Arentshuis fills his basement with temporary plastic art exhibitions that reflect the Groeninge collection, such as the rich collection of prints and drawings from the Steinmetz Cabinet. The upper floor is devoted to the work of the versatile Bruges-British artist Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956). He painted lively, realistic scenes in which he's industrial life in the docks and factories, and the hard labor of workers representation.
He also explained his many travel impressions colourful oils, watercolours and etchings. The artist also designed furniture and carpets.
