Abstract
The Mommen Company was a main actor in the Brussels art scene of the late 19th century. In their capacities as frame makers, art suppliers, art carriers and landlords, Félix Mommen and his relatives were intrinsically linked to the different stages of the 19th-century artistic practice, and therefore valuable for the reconstruction of the path of the work of art from its creation to its 'consumption'. The professional relationship between the Mommens and their artistic clientele involved a particular behavioural pattern.
