One year exactly after the opening of its Brussels location, Galerie de la Béraudière is pleased to announce a new exhibition devoted to the figure of the animal. The gallery invites you to come and discover its extravagant bestiary during the vernissage on Wednesday 17 May from 18:00 until 21:00 at 6 rue Jacques Jordaens in 1000 Brussels. The exhibition will then run until Friday 14 July 2017, Monday to Friday from 10:00 until 18:00 or by appointment.

Since prehistoric times, the figure of the animal has been a constant source of inspiration for creators. Some devoted themselves exclusively to the figure of the animal and made it their specialty while others turned their attention to animals more occasionally. This fascination for the animal gave birth to a wide range of representations and interpretations of the chosen subjects depending on the era and artistic sensibility.

The exhibition will explore this diversity by bringing together major works by leading masters of modern art such as Karel Appel, Rembrandt Bugatti, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí, Wilfredo Lam, Marino Marini, André Masson, Germaine Richier and more, as well as recent works by Marlène Mocquet, a contemporary French artist who will soon have a solo exhibition in the gallery.
