Exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts until September 1st, 2021
Best known for his paintings, Rik Wouters (1882-1916) was also a sculptor who expressed life in all its facets. Taking his wife Nel Deurinckx as a model, the artist created two spectacular statues with The Mad Virgin (1912) and The Domestic Worries (1913-1914), which are presented, thanks to the support of the Belfius Art Collection, in the vast atrium of the Tournai Museum of Fine Arts.
In keeping with our desire to take a fresh look at the museum's collection, a number of pieces from all periods complement the work of the great Antwerp artist. The presentation of these two sculptures is an opportunity to take a critical look at the many representations of women in the collections.
