Alfred Ost

Alfred Ost was a Belgian artist born in Zwijndrecht in 1884 and died in Antwerp in 1945. He was a painter, lithographer, but mainly a draftsman and watercolorist. Education at the Academy in Mechelen and Antwerp, at the Higher Institute in Antwerp, led by J. Van Leemputten. Stayed in Amsterdam during the First World War. Realized mainly figures, landscapes, biblical, religious and mystical subjects, caricatures, flowers, fruits, folk, folkloric and especially rural scenes with draft and work horses. From the press: "Throughout his life, Ost experienced artistry as a social vocation. In the realistic, often nervous graphic line, he depicted the hard life of the little man, the forces of nature, religious subjects or animals (especially horses). After the war years, a gloomy outlook on life was expressed in modern forms. Ost processed cubist influences, but would never give up his reality-bound color, nor his impulsive-baroque lines. ” Also designed posters and postcards, including Bavo and Lieveke, de Loteling (after H. Conscience), Boerenmin, Vlaamse Dans. Work to be explored in the Museums in Antwerp, Brussels, Hoogstraten (Stedelijk Ostmuseum), Ostend. Mentioned in BAS I and Two Centuries Signatures of Belgian Artists. (PIRON)
