On Art

--Roger Avermaete, Frans Masereel, 1976, Fonds Mercator, pp 84-7.

"Masereel pitilessly castigated man's ugliness, while praising his beauty. With rare force he carved the image of the misery man calls down upon himself, but which he has the power to prevent if he would. With the intensity that characterizes him, he extols humanity, and a society--utopian perhaps--in which all men are brothers."
----Maurice Naessens, Preface to Avermaete.
