Paul Cleempoel: 'Study kneeling nude' - Neo-expressionism - Oil on panel - Belgium - 1985
Beautiful neo-expressionist study of a kneeling nude by the Wase painter Paul Cleempoel, oil on panel. Signed, dated and professionally framed in an oak frame.
Paul Cleempoel was born in Beveren on January 11, 1937. He then ended up in Hamme. He became a teacher of creativity, ornamental drawing and plastic education at the Free Technical School in Sint-Niklaas and remained so until his retirement in 1993. Paul Cleempoel is not an academically trained artist. He became a painter because the circumstances during his youth were favorable to develop his dormant talent.
Painting was the main thing. He did individual exhibitions from 1961, although he kept it very limited. An exhibition in Sint-Amands (on the Scheldt) brought one of his works to the collection of the respected art connoisseur and art patron Maurits Naessens, which earned him a ticket for the 1968 exhibition 'The Young Painter'. Antwerp inspired him to paint watercolors again. For him, changing technology is a means of innovation, since every material requires its own specific treatment.
