Thank you for your interest in Laurent Moonens. 

ARTWORKS :

His artworks are accessible through the catalog page, classified by subject, by media and by the three main periods of his career. Each choice will lead to a thumbnail gallery which allows to browse through his pictural production.

If the title is an active link (more and more will be), it will display a 66 dpi zoom view which respects the the relative scale of the artworks. A tape measure is displayed in the top left corner.

A detailed view at maximum resolution is most of the time available from the zoom view.

MOONENS FOUNDATION :

A whole section about the "Fondation Moonens", the "Prix Laurent Moonens" and its activities ("Agenda") is accessible from the Homepage.

ARCHIVES :

For those who are interested, the "Congo years" page of the Archives section contains a lot of material and information about the "Academy of Fine Arts" created in 1951 by Moonens in Elisabethville (now Lubumbashi, D.R.C.) and the painters from "The School of Lubumbashi".

 

The website is regularly enriched and updated, come again and check the changelog list below.
