Michel Depypere (1923 – 1978)

Depypere was best known as a renowned landscape painter.  This marshland painting is of his home town of Kuurne, in Belgium.

Very subtly executed with muted colours Depypere creates a real sense of the openness of the flat marshland, with small cottages only just visible underneath the large expanse of moody sky.

Oil on canvas, signed on front and verso signed and dated 1969.

Dimensions ~ 86 cm high x 1.08 m wide x 7.5 cm deep, including frame.
