David and Alice Van Buuren were art patrons and philanthropists who used funds from the fortune that David made in the financial services industry to build a magnificent Art Deco house and outfit it with exquisite gardens and valuable works of art. The house and its contents were bequeathed to a private foundation in 1970, and subsequently made available to the general public as a museum. Artists represented include Flemish and Italians masters from the 15th to the 19th century, the two sons of Bruegel, the school of Rembrandt, Guardi, Fantin-Latour, Ensor, and Van Gogh. Van Buuren was a patron of the surrealist van de Woestyne, and 32 paintings by him constitute the largest representation of any single artist in the museum.
