Willy Anthoons
The spirit of matter

The gallery is pleased to participate in this exhibition, entrusting four works of the artist on the occasion of this first retrospective dedicated to the work of Willy Anthoons. A contemporary of Idel Ianchelevici, with whom he exhibited at the Tendances contemporaines salon in La Louvière, Willy Anthoons (1911-1982) was a major Belgian avant-garde artist. Co-founder of the Young Belgian Painting, in which he is the only representative of the sculpture, close to Michel Seuphor or Ossip Zadkine, Willy Anthoons provokes today only a weak echo among the public. An artist remarkable for the constancy of his research, the strength of his language and the coherence of his multi-faceted work, Anthoons takes advantage of the overcoming of the rules and conventions of abstraction of the time to translate a very personal lyricism, imbued with universality and mysticism.
