Pierre Alechinsky

Pierre Alechinsky, founding member of CoBrA in 1949, was an exemplary advocate of the unexpected. Alechinsky often blended subjects and narratives with ease, embracing accidents and working regularly in series. His lyrical abstraction - a combination of Oriental mark making and iconography reminiscent of Paul Klee - can be found in book illustrations, prints of many variations, films, drawings, sculptures, and paintings.
