About the artist:
In 1909, Pierre-Louis Flouquet comes to Brussels with his parents. In 1914, he enrols at the Brussels academy, where he studies until 1919. In that same year, he shares a studio with René Magritte. The first works by Flouquet show a strong influence of Cubism and Futurism, which he learns about in 1920 during his military service.
Back in Brussels he establishes the publication 7 Arts with Pierre Bourgeois and Karel Maes, in which they defend Modernism. In 1925, Flouquet exhibits in the famed gallery Der Sturm in Berlin. Also in 1925, along with Marcel-Louis Baugniet and Jean-Jacques Baillard, he establishes the group L’Assaut. Beginning in 1928, his work evolves into a figurative expressionism, but at the start of the 1930’s, he stops with painting and primarily occupies himself as a critic, architectural journalist and writer. In 1930, along with Pierre Bourgeois, Maurice Carême, Georges Linze, Edmond Vandercammen and Géo Norge, he establishes Journal des Poètes.
