Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK)
The Academy was founded in 1741 by the painter Philippe Karel Marissal at his home as a liberal private school for drawing. During his studies in Paris, Marissal had become impressed by the Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture. The Academy was granted a royal charter in 1771 by empress Maria Theresa of Austria.
In 1995 the Academy was one of the sixteen educational institutions that were merged into the Hogeschool Gent.
