Quick Reference

An art shop and exhibition gallery in Brussels, opened by the writers André de Ridder and Paul-Gustave van Hecke in 1920 and operative until 1931. Their bulletin, also named Sélection, grew to become the most important avant-garde art periodical in Belgium; the last twelve numbers, issued between 1928 and 1931, took the form of monographs. Most of the leading Belgian Expressionists showed their work at Sélection, and from 1927 to 1931 several of them—including van den Berghe, de Smet, and Tytgat—were under contract to submit half their output to the gallery.

Subjects: Art.
