||Jos de Mey. Flemish artist was born in
1928. He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent Belgium

Magritte with the flemish touches of Brueghel and other painters of
the low countries. Many of his recent works feature an owl, the
paradoxical flemish symbol that simultaneously represents theoretical
knowledge and the wily fool. (See also the article "Painting
