M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste échte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

Jack Butler Yeats

+ 1957

Né à London (GB), décédé en Dublin (IE).

Jack B. Yeats, brother of Nobel Prize winning writer William Butler Yeats, began his career as an illustrator for magazines and comic strips before he began exploring painting in oils. He was influenced by French Impressionism and his paintings displayed elements of Romanticism. The subject matter of his painting ranged from Celtic mythology to landscapes and genre paintings. With time he developed his own Expressionistic style of work and used a wide range of bright colours and free brushstrokes. His paintings are noted to share similarities with those of his good friend, the artist Oscar Kokoschka. Although not active in the Irish Republican movement, he expressed his sympathy towards the cause through his moving and realistic depictions of the urban and rural life in Ireland to portray a modern Dublin. His painting of a girl placing flowers at the place where British soldiers had shot down Irish volunteers who were unsuccessfully trying to prevent arms from landing was a poignant expression of the nationalist sentiments prevalent during those times. In addition to being a painter, he was also the author of several novels and had an interest in theatre.
