Flemish artist Théo van Rysselberghe (1862-1926) is one of the most important figures in the field of Neo-impressionism. He introduced the Pointillist technique of Seurat and Signac in Belgium and played a major role in the group of avant-garde Brussels artists known as "Les XX" (Les Vingt). This exhibition at the Gemeentemuseum will include not only a large number of well-known masterpieces, but also works from private collections which have never previously been seen by the public. It will be the first ever major retrospective of this influential painter to be held in the Netherlands.
