La Monnaie - Entrance and honorific staircase

Entrance and honorific staircase

The staircase is embellished with a monument (1910) by the Belgian sculptor Paul Dubois honouring the manager and musical director Dupont, and with a number of monumental paintings (1907-1933) by Emile Fabry. The Liège architect Charles Vandenhove created a new architectural concept for the entrance in 1985-86 and commissioned two American artists to execute his ideas: Sol Lewitt designed a fan-shaped floor in black and white and Sam Francis painted the triptych on the ceiling.
