ALECHINSKY from A to Y
23 November 2007 – 30 March 2008
In order to pay homage to Pierre Alechinsky, a famous Belgian artist now aged 80, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium shows a retrospective exhibition until 30 March 2008. An important works series will be gathered in close co-operation with the artist : paintings, drawings, engravings and books illustrations will be selected in national and international collections.
This exhibition will constitute a retrospective and labyrinthine journey through the artist’s chosen themes, evoking work that has been underway for more than 60 years. Baluchon et ricochets, one of the books on Pierre Alechinsky published by Gallimard, draws attention to this method of developing images and ideas through rebound, transformation and mutation. Our exhibition will also show the diversity of technique: oil, ink and acrylic paintings (sometimes monumental: Alveoli, The Days Are Getting Longer), drawings (sometimes very large: Commissions and Colloquies, The Travelling Paintbrush) right up to the “infeuilletables” (books made of enamelled stone or porcelain).
