11 September - 3 February 2013. The Royal Museum of Fine Art presents the fourth edition in its series dedicated to Expressionism, an art movement characterised by strong, often excessive emotion and a naive humanism.
Highlighting the contribution made by key figures in Belgian Expressionism, curators have selected virtually all of the Expressionist works from the museum's collection, with a particular focus on the artists Constant Permeke, Frits Van den Berghe and Gustave De Smet, as well as lesser-known artists such as Rik Wouters or Jakob Smits.
The Flemish version of Expressionism was interpreted differently and developed several decades after the movement began in Germany in the early 20th century.
