A gallery of Jacob's recent masterpieces from his "Belgian Phase"
The modern classic "Ducks in a Pond." A clue to its being completed during the Belgian Immersion period of Jacob's career are the multitudes of cobblestones on the right, which are nicknamed "kinderkop" (children heads!) in cycling parlance.
The inspired "Lego my Apple" combining both still life of an Apple logo with a portrait from Lego Heroica. Very few artists have been able to master either style, let alone combine them in a single drawing that, with its sword flying through the heart of the apple, also raises a cautionary tale for our times.
