With its upcoming exhibition Robert Brandy face à lui-même, the National Museum of History and Art (MNHA) is inviting visitors to explore half a century of work by this popular and well-known Luxembourg artist. In his early career, Brandy quickly made a name for himself in the art world, not least because he was determined to achieve something almost unheard of in 1970s Luxembourg: to make his passion his profession and make a living from his art in his own country. Establishing himself as an independent freelance artist turned him into something of a renowned fgure and, without Brandy even knowing it, was to pave the way for other artists to follow in his footsteps.
