Cornelis le Mair (1944- ) - Landschap
Oil on hardboard - 1970

Early work by Cornelis Wilhelmus Antonius Maria (Cees) le Mair (Eindhoven, 3 July 1944) was a Dutch artist. As a child, Le Mair already developed a talent for drawing. After going through high school, he attended the art academy in 's-Hertogenbosch where he hoped to improve his painting techniques. He left the academy, because he found that it almost exclusively taught 'free expression'. He was advised to move to the Royal Academy of fine arts in Antwerp, where the old craft of painting was still being taught. He found a mentor in professor Victor Dolphijn in the field of craft techniques of old masters.
The work has recently been restored, frame has a minor damage, see photos.
