As from 23 November 2004 until 30 January 2005 an exhibition will take place in the Mechelen Town Hall to commemorate the 100th birthday of Herman De Cuyper (1904-1992).

This exhibition, which is being organised by the Museum Herman De Cuyper in co-operation with the Municipal Museums of Mechelen, boasts a selection of sculptures and drawings originating from the vast collection of the museum, supplemented with a few lendings from private collections.


The exhibition aims at showing the visitor a sample of the artistic heritage of this animistic artist, who had received his artistic education at the Mechelen Academy.

The title “Herman De Cuyper – Imaginator of the intimate” clearly shows the themes elaborated by this sculptor. Next to the children’s portraits, images of the family life completed with a few religiously inspired sculptures dominate his oeuvre. Some thirty volume works and about a dozen drawings can be seen as well as two paintings. The accompanying brochure briefly outlines the life and work of Herman De Cuyper and is available in the Municipal Museums of Mechelen and the Museum Herman De Cuyper.
