Belgische kunstschilder Isidore Meyers

Meyers Isidore

Isidore Meyers was a Belgian artist born in Antwerp in 1936 and died in 1916 in Brussels. He was a draftsman and painter. Education at the Academies in Dendermonde and Antwerp under Jacob Jacobs (1850-1855). He mainly painted river, rural and seasonal scenes with a special interest in farms and the Scheldt landscape. Traveled to Paris in 1855, where he was joined shortly afterwards by A.J. Heymans and had contacts with Daubigny and Corot. After his return in 1858, he withdrew for a few years in the Antwerp Kempen, where he was particularly attracted by the heath plains and pine forests in Wechelderzande and by the heather-covered dunes and fens in Kalmthout. He painted typical corners without – like the other painters of the Kalmthout School – emphasizing the desolation and gloom of this region. Together with J. Rosseels and A. J. Heymans, he belongs to the progressively oriented landscape painters of the so-called School of Kalmthout. Smooth brushstroke, rich paint material, subtle color. Precursor of Belgian Impressionism. Started traveling in 1871 and settled in Driegoten in 1872. Was a teacher at the Academy in Dendermonde (1865-1904). Settled in Brussels in 1889. Work in the Museums in Antwerp, Brussels, Verviers, among others. Mentioned in BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (piron)
