Gustave Van de Woestyne (Belgium / 1881 - 1947)
Portrait of Elisabeth Van de Woestyne, twin-daughter of the artist (1926)


€ 140 000 - 180 000

"In an expressionist manner, the painter personifies the psyche of his twin daughter Elisabeth (Tiegem ° 1913) .The enlarged almond eyes are a typical post-war feature. Centrally, the semi-circular, straight hairstyle emphasizes the face with its gaze, the severe mouth and the lifted shoulder. The pocket square, however, alludes to her warmhearted affection: a paternal inquiry about what goes on in the head of his daughter! With his care, he embraces her with a pinkish, gray light. The exquisite portraitist evokes with great skill a moving, experienced family atmosphere. " (Huguette Van de Woestyne-Vanagt)
With thanks to Mrs. Huguette Van de Woestyne-Vanagt for providing the information about this work.
