Maurice Wyckaert: Inner Landscapes

Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, Brussels

NOW CLOSED

In developing his distinctive, explosively colourful style, the Belgian painter Maurice Wyckaert (1923–96) drew on the examples of Flemish expressionism and calligraphy. The artist was also involved in or associated with key European avant-garde movements in the 1950s and ’60s, such as CoBrA and the Situationists – this exhibition argues that his canvases reveal a philosophical quest for the expansion of selfhood.
