Laagland Ludo

Ludo Laagland (pseudonym of Peeters Ludo) was a Belgian artist born in Paal in 1923 and died in Pellenberg in 2006. He was a painter, draftsman and poet. Self-taught, but made numerous copies in the museums after great masters such as Bruegel and Hals. Roamed from museum to museum throughout Europe and especially in France. Realized figures, portraits and landscapes. In his canvases one can usually clearly recognize the old Kempen landscape from his youth: a lonely house in an endless plain, sometimes under snow and sometimes under a radiant sun and a large, flat sky. He reduces his landscapes to the ultimate essence of plane, line and color. From the press: “As with J. Smits and A. Van Dijck, with whom he is in a certain sense related, his oeuvre also reflects that innate respect for humanity and the love for everything that is real and unaffected. This popular aristocrat paints out of amazement and admiration.” Mentioned in BAS II and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists.
