Pierre Alechinsky Exhibition

S De Toutes Parts Inv No 12504

19 October - 8 December 2016

The Bunkamura Museum of Art



Pierre Alechinsky (1927-), renowned for his powerful brush work as well as his unique ambivalent style between figurative and abstract, is one of the representative Belgian contemporary artists. It was within the activities of an Avant-gard artistic group COBRA, founded in 1948, that Alechinsky distinguished himself in the postwar art scene. This passionate expressionistic movement didn’t last long but Alechinsky would inherit its sprit. The exhibition Pierre Alechinskiy, held in the year of the 150th Anniversary of Belgium-Japan Friendship, is the first retrospective in Japan.
