'Belgian Market Square' by Jean-René Nys (c. 1950s)

£450.00

'Belgian Market Square', oil on paper, (c. 1950s), by Jean-René Nys (1907 - 1972). This church, Saint-Amand, and market square in the Walloon region of Belgium, in the town of Mouscron, is just over the French border from the artist's home town. It portrays a lively morning market under blue skies and an impressive church spire in the small village. The painting is quintessential Nys, with painterly strokes and autumnal hues. The artwork is absolutely charming and would fill that small niche in one's home that is begging for something beautiful, historic and is a conversation piece. Newly framed with mount and glass. In excellent vintage condition commensurate with its age.

About the Artist: Son and grandson of painters and decorators, Jean-René Nys was enthralled with fine arts from the age of 9. He was admitted to the Salon des Artistes Français in 1929 and had his first personal exhibition in 1930. Nys later became a professor of Fine Arts and designer for the municipal theatre in his home town in northern France. He died in 1972.
