By (author) Charlotte Mullins


  • The new collected masterpieces of painter Jan Vanriet
Full Description

This new book on Jan Vanriet, a pivotal figure in the Belgian narrative painting movement, shows the artist in his most personal way. His family history, marked by World War II, and personal memories characterize the more than 100 oil paintings he made from 2012 until 2014. Vanity is a fascinating tour of the artist’s ever-expanding universe, guided by the renowned British art historian Charlotte Mullins. Thematic and stylistic diversity, the ever changing tone of the works demonstrate that Vanriet is an artist daring to explore new horizons.
