Le Sillon Nicolas Eekman
Nicolas Eekman, who died in 1973 at the age of 84, never stopped creating, imagining and exerting his influence until his death. He remains present among contemporary painters. He is both the legitimate heir of the great painters of his native Flanders, from Hieronymus Bosh to James Ensor and is the most modern painter of the School of Paris (Ecole de Paris).
The space he has cleared with his work,represented in a score of museums in Europe and America, and the path he has charted as a painter, engraver, illustrator, remains fruitful. His admirers, friends and heirs will continue to protect, maintain and expand this path so that the artist's work and noble actions continue to open out.
Founded in 1989, the non-profit organization "Le Sillon Nicolas Eekman" ("The Furrow Nicolas Eekman") group that has formed around his daughter Luce Eekman wishes to:
- Collect those that the work of the painter touched, convinced, seduced: amateurs, students at the School of Fine Arts, collectors, art historians, critics, specialists ...
- Further improve the understanding of his work through exhibitions, retrospectives, various events, as well as in France, Belgium and Holland, as in the rest of Europe and other continents.
- Initiate studies, analysis and publications on the work of Eekman, organize Eekman Archives and develop particularly an action intended to raise awareness towards youth.
- Prepare the publication of a catalogue raisonné of all his works.
For this purpose , we invite you to join us at : " Le Sillon Nicolas Eekman "
