The exhibition devoted to Jean MILO (1906-1993) organised by « La Patinoire Royale - Valerie Bach » gallery adheres to the gallery’s tropism towards Belgian art and particularly Belgian painting, subsequently to the great « Painting Belgium, Abstraction in Times of Peace (1945-1975) » exhibition (2019), which had largely reminded the public of its existence. Like a flower that would blossom all year long, MILO’s work illustrates, throughout his entire painting career, a linear and continuous spring bloom that radiates and never declines. Driven by an instictive, almost vital necessity, the act of painting taunted him relentlessly, everyday and everywhere. As with Bonnard, Dufy, Matisse or his own friend Tytgat, at the heart of his creation lies a constantly boiling reactor of shimmering, harmonic colours in which a sparkling ode to joy and an inexhaustible expression of merriment and life are blended.
