This is the sixth in a series of exhibitions on
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.
|TU-SU||10am - 5pm|
Last admissions are 30 minutes before closing time. The exhibition is closed on 29 May 2014.
