Karel Appel

Untitled (New Year's wish 1973/74 for mr and mrs Sanders, Schiedam)
watercolour and wax crayons on paper 28.2 x 34.9 cm, signed l.r.

This work on paper was previously for sale.

Provenance: coll. Piet en Ida Sanders, Schiedam.

Karel Appel was one of the leading figures of the post-war Cobra movement (1948-1951). His work typically represents the ideals of this group of artists whose pictures express rebellion against the constraints of traditional painting. In his Cobra period Appel painted fantasy creatures and figures, but after 1951 he painted more vehemently, so that line and form merged into a turbulent, expressive impasto.
