Exposition des 70's
paintings, watercolors, ink wash drawings, etchings, pastels from the 70's
The Schleiper Art Gallery, Chaussée de Charleroi 149 in 1060 Brussels, currently shows some 100 works from the 1970s.
These include paintings, watercolours, ink cash drawings, pastels and prints by ten renowned artists from home and abroad.
The works, some of which unmistakably embody the style of the 1970s, often bridge the gap between figuration and abstract.
More on the artistic context of the 1970s.
