Marcel Delmotte

The Belgian artist Marcel Delmotte was born in Charleroi (Belgium) in 1901 and died in Mont-sur-Marchienne (Belgium) in 1984 at the age of 83.

During his lifetime he developed an extended curriculum vitae and an incredible list of expositions and musea where his art works can be found, from his hometown Charleroi to Paris to South Africa.

Started as a realist, but got thereafter influenced by the expressionism and evolved towards symbolism, producing tall compositions , interstellar landscapes and futuristic architecture.

Marcel Delmotte lived during the same era as René Magritte (Lessen, 1898 – Brussel, 1967) and Paul Delvaux (Antheit, 23 september 1897 – Veurne, 20 juli 1994).

In the Groeningemuseum in Brugge (Belgium) during the exposition “Aspecten van het surrealisme in België”, which took place between 25/02/2016 and 03/09/2017, his paintings were exposed next to those of Paul Delvaux

This surrealistic painting, named "Croisée des routes", from Marcel Delmotte was painted months before his dead in 1984 and is probably one of his last paintings he created in his life. Remarkable is also the reference to his home adress, on the backside of the painting, in Mont-sur-Marchienne, where he spent his last day.
 

The painting got renovated by the renowed Belgian Art curator renovator Frederik Cnockaert (KERAT), who gave it a detailed cleaning and renovation.
