Painter Valentijn de Waele (Hamme 1918- 1978) was educated at the Academy of Antwerp and, as a landscape painter, depicts the surroundings of his village and the Kempen in oil paintings.
This 'Vanitas met schilderspalet'' (1958) is a rather unusual work of him. Palette technique evokes the essence of the vanitas in sober colors. With a skull, faded books and a smeared palette the vanity, temporality and meaninglessness of the earthly is visualized.
The painting measures 60 x 70 cm and is firmly stretched on the canvas. It does not have a frame.
