An unusual exploration of the dialogue of words and images is at the heart of this exhibition devoted to the poet, novelist, painter and sculptor Jean de Boschère (1878-1953), hapless dandy of Belgian letters in the French language. Part of the rare circle of writer-painters, his main concern was to break down the classical logic of the illustrated book to invent new links between painting and literature. His collages, canvases and drawings reveal the inner workings of his atypical books, inviting us to apply our minds to decoding the shifting network of images that surrounds us.
