"Fernand Khnopff: Work Known and Unknown"
2004-01-16 until 2004-05-09
Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium
Brussels, , BE Belgium

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium organized this important retrospective of the oeuvre of Fernand Khnopff (1858-1921), a major artist and the leader of the Belgian Symbolist movement. This event will give the opportunity to show, for the very first time, several never before exhibited and thoroughly unknown works.

Fernand Khnopff began his career when Realism was the most advanced style in Belgium, and he always maintained a commitment to verisimilitude in the details of his works. However, Realism was not enough for him: he insisted that art must suggest the essential mystery behind the visible facts and facades. It was as a painter of symbols and allegories that Khnopff became famous. One of his most baffling allegories is The Caresses, or The Sphinx (1896), a revision of the story of Oedipus and the Sphinx. The show moves from Brussels to Montreal were visitors can enjoy Knopff’s works from June 2 to September 26, 2004.
