Chris Lebeau | Flora & Fauna
15 December 2018 till 26 January 2020

From peacocks to ibis, from dandelion to maple tree: at the exhibition ‘Chris Lebeau I Flora and Fauna’ you experience the plant and animal world as decorative artist Chris Lebeau (1878-1945) created it with such great care for detail. With nature as his source of inspiration, he designed beautiful and innovative patterns for textiles in the art nouveau style. He knows how to catch a large variety of natural motives in stunningly styled designs for damask, batik, and velours. Even today, they are true eye-catchers. The versatility of Lebeau as a ‘textile artist’ is the focal point of the exhibition. Historic sample books are presented in order to illustrate how the designer learned how to stylise natural motives and translate them into ornament prints. The exhibition can be seen in the DamaskWeaving workshop.
