Diez Anto

Anto Diez was a Belgian artist born in 1914 in Ixelles and died in 1992 in Bredene. He was a painter, draftsman and graphic artist. He was the son and student of the Spanish painter Mariano Diez y Sanchez (1879-1957). He studied at the Royal Academy in Brussels, directed by H. Van Haelen, A. Carte and A. Bastien (1934-1938). He debuted with expressionist landscapes and portraits, but evolved into a stylized symbolism with the woman and the female body as an important source of inspiration. He also painted fishermen's figures, Maria images, marines and landscapes. Many works bear witness to an almost religious sense of life. In 1985 the "Ryckewaertshoeve" in Bredene was rebuilt and furnished as a Cultural Center that bears its name. His works were also permanently accommodated there. The annual Anto Diez Prize alternately rewards a graphic artist and a painter. Work among others in the collection of the Belgian State, the royal family, the Municipalities of Bredene, Halle, Moorsele, Uccle, in the Museums in Brussels, Ostend and Moscow (Poujskin Museum). Two works were auctioned at "Christie's" in London. Mentioned in the "Lexicon of West Flemish Visual Artists II", "Artists and Galleries 1998", BAS I. (PIRON)
