Plan your visit to Uncannily real

print

This is the sixth in a series of exhibitions on The MODERNS at Koningin Fabiolazaal, a venue run by the Province of Antwerp. As the 20th century progressed, there were artists who maintained that trueness to nature was the best approach to capturing the beauty of the world. However, a painting consists of shapes and colours on a flat surface. While some artists ventured cautiously along the road towards abstraction, others chose to explore whether the rules of modernism allowed for an element of realism.
