In 2021 we celebrate the centenary of Roger Raveel (1921-2013); an ideal moment for BOZAR to organise a large-scale retrospective of his work. Raveel is regarded as one of the most important Belgian painters of the second half of the 20th century, but his exceptional visual language, balancing between figuration and abstraction, often inspired by his immediate surroundings, set him radically apart from his contemporaries.Through several thematic chapters, the exhibition traces Raveel's long artistic journey and the emergence of his unique pictorial vision.
