Christ's Entry Into Brussels in 1889 (also known as Entry of Christ into Brussels; French: L'Entrée du Christ à Bruxelles) is an 1888 painting by James Ensor and is considered his most famous work and was a precursor to Expressionism.
It was exhibited at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Antwerp from 1947 to 1983, Kunsthaus Zürich from 1983 to 1987. It showed at a retrospective in 1976 at the Art Institute of Chicago, and Guggenheim Museum.
The painting is on permanent exhibition at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. The painting is one of just three recently selected by Stefan Jonsson to explicate the history of democracy and socialism over a period of two centuries, and how "the masses" are perceived.
