Saint Sebastien

Raymond Dierickx

1904-1978

Pastel 68 X 85 cm mounted in a silver and gilded molded frame 83 X 100 cm.
I continue with this fabulous “Saint Sébastien” which, despite a few easily restored scars at the bottom, is certainly one of the Artist’s masterpieces. Situating the wounded and abandoned saint of archers in the Belgium of the interwar period, he confers on him an enormous presence which is reinforced by the compassion of other outcasts: the Romanichels of the circus whose marquee is planted on the place de the city below, the holy women arriving to take care of him.
It was for us a real discovery that this beautiful Belgian artist!
Even found in leaves and dusty, these watercolors, once prepared and framed, reveal all the talent of Dierickx, close to artists like Nicolas Eeckmann, Fritz Van den Berghe, Constant Permeke or other typically Flemish expressionists such as Anto Carte, representing Fêtes , processions, fairs in the great tradition of Flemish painters dating back to the 17th century with the Brughels, but treated with great modernity.
Other facets of his work show us his projects for frescoes or large decorations, often exotic, while in the old watercolors, we find a Symbolist vein with an elongated barrel. We are devoting an exhibition to it this summer, catalog in pdf available by email.
Do not hesitate to ask us for photos or additional information by email or phone.
In partnership with the Galerie Lafouresse, we are specialists in paintings on the Basque Country, the Landes and the Arcachon Basin.
