PIETER WAGEMANS | Summer Flowers
  • PIETER WAGEMANS | Summer Flowers


    Oil on Canvas

    37½" x 29½" / 95 x 75 cms


    This beautiful original oil painting by Pieter Wagemans depicts an array of flowers in a pattered vase. The fine painting of flowers demands considerable discipline, because the passing of time is an important challenge. A flower is always changing. Pieter works from the studio, creating imagined compositions, which are characterised by harmony and rich contrasts of colour and texture, all basking in the glow of a warm sun. To capture the moment Pieter paints each flower in turn, ‘alla prima’ until the painting is finished. Sometimes this can take a whole day, others only a few hours.

    • Building on the legacy of the Dutch Masters, Pieter Wagemans' transcendent still life paintings have propelled the artist to the forefront of contemporary realist painting.

      Pieter studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and was inspired by the Dutch still life painters David de Heem, Willem Heda, and Rachel Ruys.

      Pieter carefully composes each floral arrangement in his studio in Antwerp; this enables the artist to control the effect of light and the transitory nature of his subjects.

      Pieter bypasses the use of underpainting and paints each flower in turn, alla prima, so that each flower is captured in its prime.

      Recognisable for the balance of light and shadow within elegantly composed floral vignettes, exquisite colour harmony, and intricate details, Pieter's work appeals to and resonates with the contemporary collector.
