Korte omschrijving 📚

The Belgian painter Jan Cox (1919-1980)playedan important role in de postwar hirstory of art. He was one of the founders of the group of artists called La Jeune Peinture Belge and he was also closely related to the Cobra movement. In 1956, Cox moved to Boston (USA) where he lived and worked until 1974. Back in Belgium, he was introduced into the art society of ‘The Black Panter” gallery in Antwerp. Jan Cox’s first works are mainly abstract, but gradually they got a magical and surrealistic character. The most distinguishing feature however is his choice of mythological and religious themes in combination with the problem of existentialism. The book appears on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Jan Cox, living one’s art’, that is organized by the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp and the Department of art science, musicology and dramaturgy of the university of Gent.
