Karel Appel

Dutch, 1921-2006. Karel Appel’s work traversed across painting, sculpture and poetry and was inspired by primitive and children’s art and followers of Art Brut. He began painting as a teenager and was academically trained at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. His technique involved rendering figurative paintings with vibrant colors, thick strokes and a style of paint application called Impasto; slathering paint in quantities which once dry, appears to be coming out of the canvas. He repelled the idea of sophisticated aesthetic tastes and was also the founder of the avant-garde CoBrA association of painters. In the last decades of his career, his iconography witnessed the consistent employment of landscapes.
