The travelling brush - Pierre Alechinsky
Since 1989, the Louvre Museum and National Museums have commissioned contemporary artists to produce engraved boards for the Chalcographie, which guarantees the exclusivity of the draw, without limiting the number of events.
Pierre Alechinsky was born in 1927 in Brussels. Painter and engraver Pierre Alechinsky first trained in typography and illustration at the La Cambre school in Belgium, before becoming a founding member of COBRA, an artistic movement of Nordic origin (acronym for Copenhagen, Brussels, Amsterdam) advocating artistic spontaneity. His art is based on a constant attention to text, both poetic and literary, and on an ornamental vocabulary derived from calligraphy, in which the sign becomes meaning and form. The ship lost on this immense sea, leaving a wide trail in the sky, in the central scene of Le Pinceau voyageur is a poetic invitation to travel and elsewhere. It is also an evocation of the artist's unfinished and ever-renewed journey, equipped only with his imagination and his brushes, while the scenes placed in frames on the periphery constitute the various stations punctuating this dreamlike voyage.
