More information

Following the Siege and Fall of Antwerp in October 1914, Wouters fled to Holland where he died in exile. This was a tragic end to a life full of promise; he had painted exuberant works inspired by Impressionism. His favourite subject was his wife Nel in their home. After 1911 he used more sombre colours and a tighter compositional structure., After 1910 Rik Wouters’s Impressionism became more and more pronounced in colour and form. In 1912, the year Wouters painted this picture, he and his wife visited Paris, where they saw work by such artists as Cézanne, Picasso and Matisse. Particularly Cézanne’scompositions had a major infuence on the colours and surfaces in Wouters’s paintings.
