Art during the Great War
This exhibition illustrates the profound impact of this event and its aftermath on art and literature in Belgium. Some artists and writers fled to the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, where they came into contact with foreign art movements. Others tried to capture life behind or on the frontline.
Art during the Great War testifies to the impact of the Great War on the lives and work of six authors and artists, including Rik Wouters, Emile Verhaeren and Paul van Ostaijen.
