Van Lerberghe Karel

Karel Van Lerberghe was a Belgian artist who was born in Woumen in 1893 and who died in Ghent in 1953. He was a painter. Education at the Academies in Bruges and Ghent. Painted poetic landscapes, harvest scenes, cityscapes, atmospheric marines. Spent the First World War on the Yser Front and was a member of the Kunst aan de Yser circle. Sketched numerous war scenes. Initially found his inspiration in the West Flemish landscape with the slightly undulating plains and the infinite sky above. Was often charmed by the scenery under the snow. Settled in Ghent and also started to paint cityscapes (Ghent, Oudenaarde, Kortrijk) and more sporadic navies. Impressionistic color palette. Later also stayed in the South of France. Small still lifes were also created at the end of his life. From the press: "He had the secret of making the flat land billow and sway with a cut, melodious line, and dome above it the grandiose play of clouds or vast smooth gray skies" and "His canvases are like a kind of crystallizations of peace, of rest, and they were transposed by the painter's temperament and fine fantasy on a plan where all beauty takes on a contemplative character.” Work in the Museums in Brussels, Ghent, Leuven. Mentioned in the Lexicon of West Flemish visual artists VI, CRICK, BAS II and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (piron)
