Over the years, I’ve seen quite a few attempts to pay homage to the brilliant cover art of the iconic The New Yorker magazine. None compares to the creativity of the project called The Brusseler from Belgium’s Maison de L’Image which brings together more than 100 Belgian and international artists and illustrators from all styles and techniques to offer their personal takes on both the Belgian capital and the incomparable covers of The New Yorker .
The just opened exhibition presents a tribute from the Maison de l’Image de Bruxelles incorporating fictitious covers all on the theme of Brussels the reluctant capital of Europe. The traveling exhibition The Brusseler is modeled on predecessors such as : The Parisianer, Le Montréaler, The Tokyoiter, The Shanghairen, The Milaneser.
