Description
Chris van Dijk (1952) - "" Girl picking apples from the tree""
Oil on canvas on panel - 1952

Chris van Dijk paints in a style influenced by Impressionism and by the Romantic movement, calling his work “Romantic Impressionism”. Provenance: private collection. This is a wonderful impressionistic painting.

Impressionism is alive today as a way of looking at the world that influences the vision of contemporary artists.

Professional artist Chris van Dijk - 1952 - is born in Den Bosch ( Bois le Duc ), The Netherlands ( Pays Bas ).
Since 1978, Chris has devoted his life to creating his paintings, which, true to their Impressionist inspiration, focus on plein air scenes: at the beach, in the forest, or in the beautiful wine and poppy fields of Burgundy and Dordogne.
He has been living and working in France since 2002.

Like the works of Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt, the paintings of Chris van Dijk often feature women and children. The scenes look unposed as if the subjects were caught unawares. Most of the time, they look away from the viewer, engrossed in their daily activities, such as playing in the sand, walking in the woods or picking wildflowers. They seem to be at home in their beautiful natural surroundings. Chris van Dijk’s paintings, like the works of the Impressionists, are a celebration of the beauty of nature and life.

Claudia Moscovici wrote the biography of Chris van Dijk. Claudia Moscovici is one of the most famous art critics in the world (Ranker).

The painting will be carefully packed and sent by trackable courier
