Alechinsky d’après nature (1975)

Luc de Heusch captures the work of the Belgian artist Pierre Alechinsky (1927). Not only his work, but also the artist’s muses and the artistic process are shown. Although working in very different art forms, De Heusch and Alechinsky share an interest in local customs. In this clip, de Heusch casts his enthographer’s eye on both the artist and his work, and the actual subject of Alechinsky’s painting (here the tradition of the Gilles de Binche).
