'Soft Thoughts', Laurens Legiers

When Romanticism evolved around the idea of glorifying emotions, imagination, subjectivity, and the beauty of nature in late 18th century Europe, many works of art were a direct response to the industrial revolution that was rapidly changing every aspect of life. Now, some 200 years later, Belgian painter Laurens Legiers (1994) draws on the images from that period and the atmosphere they encapsulate, reinventing some of the signature tropes and creating his own library of tributes to the everyday snapshots of beauty and harmony.
