Jules Schmalzigaug and the Futurist Cookbook
Jules Schmalzigaug and the Futurist Cookbook pays homage to the brief but intense life of this Belgian Futurist. 2017 marked the 100th anniversary of Schmalzigaug's death in The Hague. He was the very first Belgian painter to feature at the heart of an international avant-garde movement: Italian Futurism. In fact, he reached the peak of his artistic career in 1914!
This publication published in response to the retrospective organised in Mu.ZEE looks back at the short but extremely powerful Futurist period which Schmalzigaug experienced in Italy and later as a refugee in The Hague. Artistically inspired by the Italian Futurists Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà and Gino Severini, who regarded him as a talented kindred spirit and friend, his authentic style earned a great deal of respect.
