The National Museum of Art of Romania, Wallonie-Bruxelles International, Delegation Wallonie-Bruxelles in Bucharest and the Charleroi Museum of Photography, Belgium, invites you to visit the exhibition of photography MARCEL-G. LEFRANCQ The Surrealism of Everyday Life.
The exhibition presents sixty photographs recreating, through a series of striking images, an imaginary world, capturing the upsetting realities of the artist’s epoch.
Marcel-G.Lefrancq (1916, Mons – 1974, Vaudignies) made his debut in 1932, as his oldest negatives indicate. He was self-educated in the field of photography, acquiring his own supplies from a local merchant.Nonconformist by his nature, Marcel-G.Lefrancq is the author not only of photographs capturing suggestive aspects of everyday life, but also of elaborate compositions exploring the Surrealist art movement, embraced by many Belgian artists.
