Pierre Alechinsky and the infinity of the imagination

In honour of one of the greatest living Belgian artists, Carta Canta presents a selection of Pierre Alechinsky’s works on paper.

The artist gifted over 200 works to the Royal Museums, including drawings, watercolours, etchings, lithographs and paintings.

With Carta Canta, the Royal Museums invite you to dream and travel to the infinity of the imagination with Pierre Alechinsky.

The exhibition shows Alechinsky’s never-ending exploration of the imaginary, led by a keen sense for technical experimentation. This practice elevates the act of drawing – and thus the drawing itself – to the core of his rich and multifaceted body of work. Furthermore, the exhibition’s cross-disciplinary view establishes links between the artist and the museum’s collection, from Ensor to Magritte.
