Leon Spillieart

Description

Leon Spilliaert’s unique, dramatic artistic style was inspired by cultural figures such as Edgar Allan Poe and Friedrich Nietzsche. He is best known for his enigmatic self-portraits and atmospheric night-time scenes of Ostend: his home-town. This is the first monographic exhibition of Spilliaert’s work in the UK and will showcase some 90 works on paper.
