De Lannoy René

René De Lannoy was a Belgian artist born in 1907 in Antwerp and died in 1985 in Sint-Niklaas. He was a painter and draftsman. Training at the Academy and at the National Higher Institute in Antwerp, led by Is. Opsomer. Learned to sculpt at E. Wijnants. Debuted with still lifes, flowers, landscapes, interiors. His painting flows from a laborious and constant struggle with theme and matter. Obsessed with technology, he experimented with different processes, so that the texture of some works recalls the composition of minerals. Abstraction and figuration are intertwined, while mechanical, embryonic, anatomical and zoological motifs lay at the basis of his inspiration. From the press: “With the term picotgraphy, R.D.L. a special method which he has applied since 1969 and which was a synthesis of a number of graphic and painting techniques. This allowed him to combine the best achievements of his great drawing talent with an ethereal refined play of colors.” Was also influenced by pop art in the 1970s. Work in the Museums in Antwerp, Ostend, Sint-Niklaas, among others. Retrospective in the Stedelijk Museum in Sint-Niklaas in 1972.
