Kunstwerken van de Belgische schilder Pierre Thévenet

Thévenet Pierre

Pierre Thévenet was a Belgian artist born in Bruges in 1870 and died in Brussels in 1937. He was a painter and watercolorist. Older brother of Louis Thévenet. Worked at the music publishing house Beethoven in Brussels during his childhood. Debuted as self-taught. Realized landscapes and still lifes. In the 10s he mainly painted Brabant landscapes in a luminist design and based on Brabant Fauvism. Settled in Paris after the First World War, where he also developed himself in painting. The works that were created there, including Parisian city views along the Seine and Montmartre, sometimes remind us of Utrillo. In the meantime also came to work in Anseremme, in the Maas valley. From the press: “Most paintings by P.T. immediately stand out because of their warm, charming light. The pleasant works radiate gentle calm and are serene, visual poetry. He finds the successful source of Impressionism, but he also sometimes tastes the power of Fauvism." (J. Bayes) Work in the Museums in Antwerp, Brussels and Ixelles.
