Bram Van Velde

1895 (Zoeterwoude) / 1981 (Grimaud)

"Legend has made Bram Van Velde something like the "povorello" of modern painting, a saint doomed to the greatest destitution, to a misery that pursued him most of his life, devoted to painting, implacably as one can be to God.Until the Second World War, Bram's art followed a slow and fascinating evolution, positioning itself in relation to postcubist tendencies, adopting some of the great themes of Parisian painting, windows, natures dead, which he treats in a very personal way."
