Karel Appel (Amsterdam 25 April 1921 – Zürich 3 May 2006), co-founder of the art movement CoBrA in 1948 and one of the most successful Dutch artists of the second half of the Twentieth Century has left behind an extensive and diverse body of work. The expressionist painter is known for his paintings with bright colours, large contrasts and apparent childish depictions. His paintings might seem abstract at first glance, but take a better look and you will discover all kinds of shapes, human and animal like figures and landscapes. The work of Karel Appel has been exhibited in all major art museums in the world and is presently well represented in various important private and public collections, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. In 2012 a painting by Karel Appel from 1951 was sold at auction house Christie’s for the record sum of 841,000 euro.
Gallery Delaive presents an overview of work on canvas and paper, covering a period of 1960 till the late nineties. One of the absolute masterpieces in the exhibition is a large work on canvas titled Visages-Paysages, a colourful painting, measuring 150 x 150 cm., executed in 1975. This painting is a prime example of the unique style of Karel Appel which made him an absolute icon of modern art.
