Brussels art shop

Hi can anyone help. I've just come back from Brussels and there was an art shop just off the groat market, opposite frit and toast. it sold canvas prints of animals and one of a leopard with donkey or mouse ears. it was on the.street which leads to the top of the grassmarket is. This is a strange question but I've hunted high and low on the internet for the name of the shop or the artist who does the canvas prints and can't find it anywhere. thanks.

I don't quite understand the location. Frit'n Toast is at Rue de la Madeleine 1, which is a street off rue du Marché aux Herbes (Grasmarktstraat), and anywhere opposite this could not possibly be in a street "just off the Grand' Place' which must be what you mean by Groat Market (!). I don't know what you are calling THE grassmarket, or, therefore, the "top" of that!

If the place is opposite no. 1, rue da la Madeleine, then either it is part of the block housing the Méridien Hotel (is there anything next to Chocopolis?), or else it is on rue des Eperonniers (Spoormakersstraat) - but this does not lead to the GP, and I am fairly sure there's a café (Aux Gaufres de Bruxelles, rue du Marché aux Herbes 113) on the corner of those 2 streets (Epéronniers and Marché aux Herbes); so not sure how any art shop could be "opposite" Frit'n Toast on that street.

< it was on the.street which leads to the top of the grassmarket >

At 10 rue des Éperonniers (Spoormakersstraat) is a books / antiques shop called Antiquariat Van de Plas http://g.co/maps/v4r7x

It is quite near Frit'n Toast (round the corner) but not opposite. http://g.co/maps/hdhfc

At 29 rue de la Madeleine (Magdalenasteenweg) is Posada Art Books http://g.co/maps/fzp2j - on the same street as Frit'n Toast but some distance further up.

Could it be one of those two ?

I have found it. It is Dotspot - the Pop Art shop at 31 rue de la Madeleine. I walked past it this afternoon and saw the leopard with big ears through the window.

It is quite new and does not appear on the Google Street View photo from June 2009. It occupies the shop shown on Street View as Artimex Africa-Art-House, and seems also to have taken over the Posada Art Books shop next door http://g.co/maps/4tq9q
