Art and Culture

The Expressionism painting movement found a distinctive form in Flanders under artists like James Ensor, Constant Permeke and Léon Spilliaert.

Belgian Surrealist art grew during the inter-war period. René Magritte's first surrealist painting, The Lost Jockey (Le jockey perdu), appeared in 1926. Paul Delvaux was also an extremely influential painter in this area.

Comic strips became extremely popular in Belgium during the 1930s. One of the most popular comics of the 20th century, Hergé's The Adventures of Tintin first appeared in 1929. The growth of comic strips was also accompanied by a popular art movement, exemplified by Edgar P. Jacobs, Jijé, Willy Vandersteen and André Franquin.

Famous quotes containing the words culture and/or art:

    Unthinking people will often try to teach you how to do the things which you can do better than you can be taught to do them. If you are sure of all this, you can start to add to your value as a mother by learning the things that can be taught, for the best of our civilization and culture offers much that is of value, if you can take it without loss of what comes to you naturally.
    D.W. Winnicott (20th century)

    Sweet Benjamin, since thou art young,
    And hast not yet the use of tongue,
    Make it thy slave, while thou art free;
    Imprison it, lest it do thee.
    John Hoskyns (1566–1638)
