Constant (Dutch painter, printmaker, and sculptor, 1920-2005)

Note: A member of the Dutch avant-garde of the 1950s, a founding member of Cobra, and a member of the Situationist International. With Guy Debord he devised a theory of 'unitary urbanism.' From the early 1950s through the 1960s he focussed on New Babylon, his design for a city of the future. In later life he returned to conventional painting techniques.
