Two pieces from the Hergé collection at the MORE Museum
Two paintings from Hergé's personal collection are currently on display at the MORE Museum as part of a retrospective of Pat Andrea's work.
Hergé used every means at his disposal and never failed to take inspiration from other art forms. Over the years, he built up a personal collection of various pieces. Today, some of the pieces acquired by the famous illustrator are sometimes loaned out and exhibited all over the world.
In fact, you can admire two of these pieces at the MORE Museum until 23 January 2022. Indeed, two paintings from Hergé's personal collection are on display there as part of a retrospective of Pat Andrea's work, entitled ¿QUÉ PASA?
Born in The Hague (1942) as the son of a painter and an illustrator, Andrea is renowned both in the Netherlands and internationally. In his unsettling compositions, he combines global conflicts with "the often problematic relationship between man and women". Aestheticism and alienation elevate the works above the level of reality. Over seventy paintings and drawings, dating from the 1960s to the present day, are testimony to an artistry that is imaginative and critical in equal amounts (Source: More Museum).
