Luc Cromheecke in the footsteps of Daubigny

April, 1st - May, 12th 2019


CC De Warandepoort
Markt 7b 3080 Tervuren


The French landscape painter Daubigny (1817-1878) belonged to the school of Barbizon and is generally regarded as one of the precursors of impressionism. On his famous boat "Botin", which he had converted into a studio, he was continually at work painting the banks of the Seine and the Oise in France.

The Flemish artist Luc Cromheecke, captivated by pleinairism and, like Daubigny, fascinated by nature, drew the comic strip "The Garden of Daubigny" on the basis of true stories and letter quotes.


At the beginning of 2017 there was a first exhibition on Daubigny and Cromheeckes strip in The Mesdag Collection in The Hague and in the autumn of 2017 an exhibition was held in the Jacob Smitsmuseum in Mol. In the spring of 2019 you will get the opportunity to discover the work of Daubigny and the creation of Cromheeckes comic strip in Tervuren.

Also included in the exhibition will be works from the Barbizon school and our Belgian impressionist painter Lucien Frank (second generation of the Tervuren school).
