EUGENE LAERMANS, 1864-1940. Galerie du Credit Communal, Brussels, 1995. Monographies de l'art moderne. Published in association with Snoeck-Ducaju & Zoon, Ghent. 168 pp. with 181 ills. (97 col.). 31 x 25 cm. LC 96-210365 ISBN 2871932107 In French.
Thoroughly reappraising the achievements of a Belgian painter whose unsentimentalized depictions of the urban and rural poor established him as a leading exponent of Social Realism in Belgium, this catalogue presents fine illustrations of some 75 canvases and an equal number of works on paper produced by Laermans from the late 1880s to the early 1920s. Includes a detailed biographical text, a critical overview of Laermans's career, and four essays that discuss his work in the context of the socio-political climate of late 19th-century Belgium, assess his position among other socially engaged Belgian artists of the time, examine the significance of his early involvement with the Symbolist movement, and trace his links to progressive Belgian literary figures.
