"Raymond Dierickx: "allegory Of Asia""Raymond Dierickx (1904-1978), “Allegory of Asia” Watercolor and pastel 73 X 110 cm mounted in a molded frame in raw wood 98 X 130 cm.
I continue with this very large "Allegory of Asia" which we also have the counterpart "Allegory of America". Alternating Portraits of Hindus and Geisha, Chinese characters, Balinese puppets and other symbols of this continent for certainly a fresco project. It was for us a real discovery that this beautiful Belgian artist! Even found in leaves and dusty, these watercolors, once prepared and framed reveal all the talent of Dierickx, close to artists like Nicolas Eeckmann, Fritz Van den Berghe, Constant Permeke or other typically Flemish expressionists such as Anto Carte, representing Fêtes , processions, fairs in the great tradition of Flemish painters dating back to the 17th century with the Brughels, but treated with great modernity. Other facets of his work show us his projects for frescoes or large decorations, often exotic, while in the old watercolors, we find a Symbolist vein with an elongated barrel.
