Contributions by Hans Theys

Walter Swennen is one of Belgium’s foremost contemporary painters. He paints or draws with playful irony and a special talent for visual associations. ‘Too Many Words’ brings together his work from 2017–2020 along with correspondence, artist’s writings, and drawings, many of which have not been published before. The book also features a selection of recently rediscovered older paintings, plus five recent essays and interviews written by Hans Theys, a 20th-century author and art historian.
