COBRA - Cobbaert & Corneille
Cobra is an important art movement that was founded in 1948 by rebellious artists from Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam.
The original members were Asger Jorn from Denmark, Dotremont and Noiret from Belgium and Appel, Constant and Corneille (1922-2010) from the Netherlands.
‘Cobra’ was a protest against academic painting and sought its inspiration in the purity and innocence of children's drawings. The Cobra movement later expanded to include well-known writers such as Hugo Claus and painters such as Pierre Alechinski, Pol Bury, Lucebert, Theo Wolvecamp and Jacques Doucet.
The work of the fascinating artist/musician Herman Brood, to whom another hotel room is dedicated, was also strongly influenced by this art movement.
In Leuven, Jan Cobbaert (1909-1995) was the painter with a lot of love for Cobra, although he did not want to be an official part of it.
After all, in 1937 his work had already been internationally awarded with the 'Prize of Rome' and was exhibited in Leuven's City Hall. Later he made his international breakthrough and several foreign and many Belgian museums bought his work.
Less than 100 meters from this hotel, you can find the ‘Jan Cobbaertplein’.
A square named after this important Leuven artist, who was also a teacher at the Leuven Academy.
In this Cobra Room you can see works by Corneille and Jan Cobbaert.
