  • In the centre of Mons, the Maison Losseau, a jewel of art nouveau, has undergone major restoration and enhancement work. The dwelling, as well as the adjacent buildings, are now accessible to the public. In the heart of this furnished house, listed as an exceptional Walloon Heritage Site associated with the famed architects Paul Saintenoy, Henri Sauvage and Charles Sarrazin, the floral decor is delicately decorated with mosaics, panelling, stained glass, inlaid parquet, cabinets, chandeliers and various objects.

    In addition to the listed house, that the lawyer Léon Losseau designed as “ideal, with all the technical improvements and artistic refinements”, the Province of Hainaut and the Losseau Foundation open the doors of an Interpretation Centre whose scenography, bringing to mind the world of the library and the cabinet of curiosities, lets you address the concerns and passions of Losseau, the art nouveau that he was fond of, his magnificent collection of medals and the episode of the discovery of the original edition of Une Saison en enfer by Rimbaud.

    On the second floor, a rich centre of Hainaut literature welcomes students, researchers and readers interested in the literature and history of Hainaut. With comfortable spaces for consultation and reading, an area devoted to comics and literature for young people, it also features collections by Léon Losseau, Charles Plisnier and Claire Lejeune, in a completely renovated environment open to the magnificent garden of the house.
