Jan Cox in the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Antwerp

Jan Cox (1919 The Hague – 1980 Antwerp) played a significant part in the transition from the closed, relatively provincial world of art of the 1930’s to the open, internationalist art scene of post-World War II.

Cox was cofounder of the ‘Jeune Peinture Belge’ [Young Belgian Painting] (1945-1947) and was involved in the activities of Cobra. The exhibition will not present a general and chronological overview of his work, but map out the artist’s profile on the basis of key works and thematic ensembles.
