For me it is still a mystery why Theys has not become world famous with his paintings , but remained one of the lesser known Belgian painters from his generation. Yes, there are Raveel, de Keyzer and Elias. And yes , many people know that he is one of the founders of the NEW FIGURATION mouvement, but for most that is all and they really do not remember enough his qualities as an artist. He was a gifted sculptor , but above all he could depict women in a very sensuous way and include so many abstract elements in the painting that from a distance it almost looked completely abstract.

For those that admire Theys …there are frequently auctions held which include his works and the nice thing about them is that in most cases it is still very affordable and beside their quality as a work of art, are highly decorative colorful elements in any interior.  Take notice of  Yvan Theys whenever there is an auction or gallery exhibition. He was an artist who deserves to be known and appreciated by many. There are some excellent books available at www.ftn-books.com
