Exhibition. Kurt Lewy - Towards Abstraction

From 11 September 2020 to 18 April 2021 at the Jewish Museum of Belgium.

Painter, enameler and illustrator Kurt Lewy (1898-1963) was born in Essen (Germany). Immediately upon the rise of Nazism, the Jewish artist was relieved from his duties. Two years later, he flees from Hitler-Germany and settles in Brussels.

This exhibition is based on the collections of the Jewish Museum of Belgium, but also on works by the Antwerp gallery Callewaert-Vanlangendonck. It turns the spotlight on a figure of Belgian post-war painting that is not to be missed but is now forgotten. The works start from the figurative and end with the abstract.
