Atmospheric painting by the Brabant artist Frans Manders. Pictured is a view on Oosterhout, with the distinctive Basilica of Saint John the Baptist (Sint-Jansbasiliek).
In comparison to other work, we dated it around 1990. Painted on a panel of 30 x 40 cm, signed on the bottom right.
As a landscape painter, Frans Manders is best known for his floral still lifes and his pieces which centrally feature unspoiled nature and ancient landscapes of Brabant. As is the case with this atmospheric work, painted with warm colours.
Frans Manders attended the academy of Industrial Design in Eindhoven and became a graphic designer and illustrator in 1961.
In 1978, he became an independent artist and initially painted the landscape of Brabant. He hung out with Theo van Oorschot, Jos Leurs, Lambert van der Velden and Henri Hess. Soon, he also worked a lot in the French countryside.
His initially darker colour pallet made way for a lighter use of colour, with the southern light entering his paintings. He has held many exhibitions.
The painting is nicely framed and is in very good condition.
The origin is from a private collection. It will be carefully packaged and sent by registered mail.
The last images come from the book 'Frans Manders', publication of Museum Kempenland Eindhoven, 1988, and exhibit similar work from that period and some additional information about the artist.
