Lucien De Roeck, Affiche Expo 58 © Fonds Lucien De Roeck,
To commemorate the centenary of his birth, the Museum of Ixelles pays tribute to Lucien De Roeck (1915 – 2002), creator of one of the most iconic posters of Expo 58. As a graphic designer, typographer, designer and creator of posters, De Roeck is a Belgian artist with an undeniably extraordinary talent. His work, characterised by an accuracy of line and irregular spirit, shows a purification of drawing and observant imagination that remains astonishingly modern.
Original posters, newspaper cartoons, sketchbooks, paintings and drawings will be exhibited to allow visitors to discover or rediscover this designer whose students at La Cambre (ENSAV) included Pierre Alechinsky and Jean-Michel Folon.
