Reference Code : 19HST40M-HJ.PAUWELS

Large original oil on original canvas, signed lower right.
Very beautiful and imposing representation of a countryside landscape, Belgian or Dutch, with its houses with "orange" roofs, its small pond in the foreground and its mill, towards the back of the work. Although the sky appears somewhat cloudy, signifying the changeable weather at the moment, the sun's rays nevertheless manage to hit the ground and partially "line" the walls and roofs of the houses. The work on light and contrasts is remarkable and the "blur" of the background is no less so. A perfectly executed painting !

Henri Joseph PAUWELS was born in 1903 in Haasdonk, Belgium. He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, where he was trained in the classical academic tradition. He also worked with the Ghent painter Jules de Sutter.
From the beginning of his career, Henri Joseph PAUWELS was very influenced by the landscapes of his native region, the Waasland, of which he painted many landscapes throughout his life.
His landscapes are characterized by great attention to detail and a quiet, contemplative atmosphere. He enjoyed painting the fields, rivers and woods of his native region often using a soft and subtle color palette.
The painter was also known for his portraits, which were often very expressive and imbued with great sensitivity. He produced portraits of local personalities as well as portraits of family members and friends. He also painted still lifes, most often characterized by great attention to detail and an atmosphere of calm and serenity. They most frequently represent simple objects such as fruits, flowers or kitchen utensils.
Henri Joseph PAUWELS was a member of various artistic associations including the group "Vie et Lumière" and the circle of "Friends of art".
The artist lived most of his life in Beveren-Waas where he died in 1983.
