The Louis Van Lint Institute

The Louis Van Lint Institute was founded in February of 2016. Its aim is to promote and sustain the work of painter Louis Van Lint and, in a broader sense, the Belgian post-war art world. Its focus is on the communications regarding the artist and his peers from that period; the organisation of exhibitions; archival research; and the publishing and the provision of further general information concerning the subject.
