Jan Bogaerts (1878-1962) - Stilleven met citroenen
Mixed media - Hand signed - 1927

After studying at the academies in Den Bosch and Antwerp, Jan Bogaerts initially painted dreamy figure pieces and fairytale parks and gardens in the atmosphere of symbolism. This shows the influence of his teacher from Den Bosch Antoon van Welie. Since 1915, he made mostly still lifes, both from flowers as well as objects. These are more realistic than the landscapes, but just as sober and tranquil. For his compositions, Bogaerts used both everyday attributes and antique objects, such as carafes, bottles, dishes, painted boxes and jewels, which he placed in front of a sober background.
