Nativity at the circus

Raymond Dierickx

1904 – 1978

Oil on panel 92 X 105 cm protected by a small rod 93 X 106 cm.
From this plunging perspective that the artist likes, the gaze converges on the scene at the bottom left where the people of the nearby circus, clowns and acrobats come to adore the Child, a recurring theme of Dierickx who liked to place scenes from the New Testament in its contemporary Belgium. It was for us a real discovery that this beautiful Belgian artist! Even found in leaves and dusty, these drawings, 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 dedicated an exhibition to it (pdf catalog available by email) with the first ones found, but we have bought many since !
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.
