Belgian artist Emile Claus loved drawing from an early age and narrowly escaped a future as a baker by paying his way through the Antwerp Academy of Fine Arts. His draftsmanship evolved into a talent for painting, which he would then practice in his rural riverside cottage. Inspired by the lush setting, humble people, and gorgeous natural light, his artwork excelled to international fame. His luminist style was inspired by Claude Monet's attention to the unique lighting and atmosphere.
Emile Claus (1849-1924) was a Belgian painter, who is considered to be the pioneer of Belgian Luminism. In 1904, he founded the society Vie et Lumière ('life and light').
Awesome site that allows you to choose your rooms paint color and then displays the painting on that wall. Brings the painting you choose into perspective. I love this feature!
So happy with my purchase! It looks great, came very quickly and without any issue. Very happy with my first purchase from Overstock Art!
I ordered The Kiss for my wife and she absolutely loves it. The Luxury Line version on this painting has the additional textures and depth which really bring this painting to life. The website recommended frames that would match the painting and their choice was spot on. Very happy with my purchase!
Dance at Bougival is one of my favorite Renoir paintings. I had a cheap print but this one on canvas gives me so much joy. I just love it!
