To dive into the work of Antoine Mortier (1908-1999), a major figure within lyrical abstraction in Belgium, is to take the path of discovery and the luxury of a unique adventure. He reveals his inner world with the gesture he projects onto the canvas with an energy which is nothing other than the expression of his soul. Drawings and inks echo the paintings, sometimes revealing the secrets of their birth. The choice of a thematic approach offers a journey through time disclosing the abundant diversity of an œuvre which equals that of the greatest modern painters.

“Subjects are only pretexts for painting. The creator must dominate life.”

“The most secret, the most beautiful is only acquired through persevering love and silent effort.” 


Antoine Mortier
