Pierre Alechinsky (Brussels 1927) became a member of the CoBrA group after meeting Christian Dotremont. Together with Dotremont, Alechinksy was the driving force of the Belgian part of the group. So much that his true artistic development came after CoBrA fell apart.
In 1955 he settled in Paris after the group split. The artwork Arrondissement Gironde fits perfectly in this development. Please feel free to visit the gallery in Maastricht to see this lithography.
