Arie C. Van Noort
"At the Beach" Impressionistic Oil Painting of Figures in Zandvoort Holland

Mid-20th Century

$4,000

About

A wonderfully rich beach scene done in Zandvoort Holland in the Mid-20th Century depicting figures in the sand. Some figures are by the water as kids play in the distance. The impressionist details are greatly admired as Arie van Noort is considered one of the last representatives of The Hague School as an impressionist painter in the French line. This painting is signed lower right and comes housed in a simple silver tone wood frame with hanging wire on verso. Art measures 16 x 20 inches Frame measures 17 x 21 in Arie van Noort (Adrianus Cornelis van Noort) was born in Bennebroek, the Netherlands in 1914. He worked with his father who was a house painter and had the dreams of achieving much more as an artist. During the day he would work his day job, but in the evenings he studied and painted. He began his artistic career with studies under Henri Fréderic Boot, a famous artist from Haarlem and extensively studied the great masters of impressionism, a prominent force in all of his paintings. Being an on-sight painter, mostly executing works of the beaches of Holland nearby his house, we can admire the great use of light and contrast, always feeling the mood of the day from which he painted. This was his main objective, to gather the inspiration of the moment, and translate this into his canvases. We can feel this quality in his work effortlessly, as each piece vibrates with energy and movement. Van Noort participated in several exhibitions organized at the end of the 40's in the Frans Halsmuseum, Het Huis van Looy in the Waaggebouw. He won the first prize even in a match. His teacher, H. F. Boot had a great deal of appreciation for Van Noort, admiring the structure in his pieces. Verwey bought a work from Van Noort to donate to Godfried Bomans. In 1942 he was accepted as a member of the society "Kunst zij ons Doel". It did take the artist time to build his career as an artist, and in 1977 he grew to a status of having a constant demand for his work. He gained almost instant success. Exhibitions in Basel, Knokke, Geneva, and Paris were well received by the public. In addition, Van Noort gained much interest from the US. A.C. Van Noort is seen as the last representative of the Hague School. Beach views are the main subject of his body of work, but he also captures flower fields, cityscapes, and landscapes. The artist personality is best described as balanced and comfortable with an extremely positive life setting. At the same time, he was a humble and faithful man who, as he himself said, did not like to go into difficult situations. Van Nort was the last representative of The Hague School as an impressionist painter in the French line. His work is admired all over the world having exhibitions from the Brès Gallery in Amsterdam to New York, Los Angeles, and Singapore. He died in 2003 at the age of 89. He was active and lived in Holland most of his life while preferring to go outside and use his paintbrush to capture “En plein air” his perception of the world. PROVENANCE: Lilac Gallery Collection. This original artwork is signed by the artist lower right "Van Noort" includes a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the Gallery. The piece will be stamped from Lilac Gallery on its verso.
