Permeke Paul

Paul Permeke was a Belgian artist born in Sidford/Great Britain in 1918 and died in Westkapelle in 1990. He was a painter and draftsman. Self-taught. Youngest son of Constant Permeke. He went to Lausanne at the age of 16 because of a disagreement with his father about his art education. Back in Belgium he lived with L. Peire and R. Slabbinck for a year in the painting community Het Luizengevecht in Dudzele. Was interned as an English citizen during World War II. From 1937 he painted scenes situated in farming villages, trailers, farmers' balls, fairground scenes, and mixed elements of impressionism and expressionism. A short period of unreal scenes is reminiscent of Ensor and Chagall. The miserabilism à la Buffet from the years 1946-1947 had little meaning in his oeuvre. After a stay in Spain and Portugal (1953-1954) and in the South of France (1955), his palette became lighter, happier and sunnier. Based in Westkapelle from 1960, he found his inspiration mainly in the polder region and the turbulent heavens, but he also remained loyal to all other motifs that were close to his heart, such as the common man, the vagrant, the fisherman, the farmer. From the press: “In the prestigious line of the great Flemish expressionists, P.P. an essential place. Although he follows the tradition of the School of Sint-Martens-Latem, of which his father was the most eminent representative. He also innovated, both through his subjects: polders, dolls, groups of musicians, and through a technique that combines a sober brushstroke with an opulent color.” Work among others in the Museums in Antwerp and Ostend. Mentioned in the Lexicon of the West Flemish visual artists IV, BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. Source: Paul Piron, The Belgian Visual Artists
