About

Antoine Daens (French) La Belle de l'ete (nude) Signed 'Ant.Daens' (lower left) Oil on canvas 42 x 35.1/4 in (including frame) Here we can see Daens' attraction to the impressionist style. A light and vibrant image of a forest nymph after bathing. The lovely blue / green palette that Daens has used creates a soft and luscious background and is reflected in the dappled flesh tones of the naked nymph who looks gently to one side. Antoine Daens was born in Brussels, Belgium in 1871. He was an impressionist painter of figures of young women, portraits, still life subjects, nudes, interiors, gardens and landscapes. He painted with oils and pastels. He studied at the Brussels Academy of Fine Art. Daens exhibited often at the Belgian venues including at the Brussels Gallery in 1918. He was named a professor at the Watermael-Boitsfort Academy of Fine Art where he spent many years as a master teacher. Daens died in Ixelles, Belgium in 1946. Today, his paintings can be found in private and public collections including at the Ixelles Museum of Fine Art in Belgium.
