Belgian Jos Albert lived and worked in Brussels and was educated at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Sint-Joost-ten-Node. Around 1910 he joined the Brabant Fauvists, a group of painters characterized by a quick brushstroke and contrasting colours. The most famous painter of this group was Rik Wouters. Albert's palette became sober following a visit to Paris in 1919, where he became acquainted with the work of the French Cubists. The outspoken colors then make way for a more subdued use of blues, grays and greens. His loose fingerboard is also curbed. Albert's oeuvre is varied, he painted many still lifes with fruit and vegetables, but he also captured his surroundings, from landscapes, cityscapes with churches to cafe scenes. Albert exhibited regularly, including in the Central Museum Utrecht.
