Jean Dypréau Art critic & art writer
At the occasion of the publication of the collected writings of Jean Dypréau, a selection from the collection modern art will be put to display in the Patio. These artists were close to the heart of Dypréau.
From 1952 until the end of his life Jean Dypréau (Brussels, 1917-1986) was a committed and critical voice in the artistic life, especially in Brussels. He wrote critiques in art magazines as Temps Mêlés, Quadrum, Phantomas, XXe Siècle, Journal des Beaux-Arts et Plus, introductions of expositions in galleries and art centers as Galerie Aujourd'hui, Galerie Ad Libitum, Le Zodiaque, the Palace of Fine arts and several other galleries and art centers interior and abroad, and essays for cultural publications and museums. His interest lay in informal and abstract art, and pop art.
It will be no surprise that all the artists Dypréau wrote about are present in the collections of the Royal Museums. At the occasion of the publication of his collected writings, a selection from the collection modern art will be put to display in the Patio. These artists were close to the heart of Dypréau. In a separate section of about 8 paintings, which were also on display in the exhibition of 1959, will be presented.
