Arsène DETRY (Koekelberg, 1897 - Mons, 1981)
Huile sur toile, 60 x 40 cm, maisons
Peintre de paysages et de vues urbaines. Passe sa jeunesse à Paris. A ces débuts, il subit l’influence de Lhotte et Cézanne. Ces œuvres ne dictent aucune préoccupation sociale mais juste une volonté de transcrire la lumière en se servant de formes géométriques (maisons, usines, trains, gare). Pour  René Magritte, Arsène Detry est un surréaliste qui s’ignore; il règne dans ses œuvres une ambiance étrange caractérisée par une lumière feutrée et l’absence de personnages
