[ Roger Raveel, a retrospective ]

BOZAR, Brussels, 18 march 2021

the Raveel retrospective @ BOZAR


Roger Raveel (1921-2013) would have turned 100 in 2021, and to commemorate this, BOZAR is organizing a major retrospective on his fascinating oeuvre.  Raveel is considered one of the most important Belgian painters of the second half of the 20th century, but he radically distinguished himself from his contemporaries by his own unique visual language, with his own environment as the main source of inspiration.  through various thematic chapters, the exhibition traces Raveel's long artistic journey. 

the exhibition will run from February 19 to July 4, 2021.

arty-farty.fun's opinion: a must  go for every Belgian artventurer, showing his / her respect for Roger Raveel.  he broke down the barriers between the work of art and its environment, thus creating a unique recognizable style, with the square being his visible watermark. for non-locals, the retrospective is a must to discover how great a talent this bizar country had in the past.
