Oil on canvas - Hand signed - onbekend

Pierre Hendrix (Antwerp 1913-1995) was a Belgian painter. From 1927 to 1934 he studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. He is best known as a landscape painter and portraitist.
As a “landscape designer” he often sought his subjects in the immediate vicinity: dirty snow, backs of rows of houses, railway crossings. Own to his landscape paintings is the nostalgia, growing out of the contrast between eternal and transient. "The everyday reality is with loving eyes watched, and thereby makes Pierre they apparent otherwise," said Anton van Wilderode ever about the landscapes of his good friend, "then nothing can be still ugly".
Among the most famous portraits of Pierre Hendrix are undoubtedly those of orgalist Jan Walach, novelist Jos Van Rooy, sculptor Albert De Smet and certainly the one of daughter Ria with straw hat. In all his portraits Pierre Hendrix seeks to reach out to the barely visible, to the secret, to the essential. Pierre Hendrix is mentioned in the Belgian art books.
