  • About the artist

    Van Rysselberghe (1862 – 1926) is considered an important leader of pointillism, with which he inspired Dutch artists such as Jan Toorop.

    During one of his travels in Morocco in 1888, he literally and figuratively saw the light and started applying dots of unmixed paint with which he managed to express light and color in a sublime way. He will continue to use this technique throughout his career.

    The exhibition outlines Van Rysselberghe's development through his favorite themes: society portraits, sun-drenched landscapes from Flanders to Morocco, seascapes and the female nude. His oeuvre is an ode to the beauty of life and to painting itself.
