Jo Delahaut (1911-1992) was one of the most important post-war Belgian artists and the most important representative of geometric abstraction in Belgium
During the Second World War, Delahaut's work evolved from Abstract Expressionism to Geometric Abstraction, from 1942 onwards he created his first abstract works.
Together with Pol Bury, Jean Milo and others, he founded the artist group Art Abstrait and in 1954 he co-authored the "Manifeste Spatialist".
In his own words, he used geometric planes in his work because they are the most representative of humans, they are readable and understandable even without any theoretical knowledge and they directly appeal to intuition.
Delahaut's work can be found in the collections of numerous museums, including the SMAK and the Royal Museums of Fine Arts in Brussels.
